“”I am new to the High River and Okotoks area. I have an educational background in marketing. Over the past 7 years I have generally held management positions within companies. Unfortunately with Okotoks and High River being such a small area there wasn’t a ton of options for me work wise. McBride Career Group had set me up with a Career Coach to help me with job placement and over all preparedness for the work force out here. She took time looking up suitable jobs, helping me with presentations and doing mock interviews as well as constantly doing follow ups with me. My coach has guided me into finding a successful construction management career that I am happy with. Her bubbly personality and her drive gave me the confidence. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.”
