The instructors at Selkirk College all have industry experience and are very knowledgeable and helpful. They were eager to help out when needed in order for their students to succeed.
Fiona Matthews, one of my instructors, encouraged me to study abroad so in my 4th year of my program, I decided to take a semester in Australia and gain some international education and experience. I thank Fiona for planting the seed in one of the best decisions I made.
The instructors at Selkirk encourage their students to continue their education after leaving Selkirk. After graduating, I transferred to Okanagan College and finished my BBA last year. I am working at QHR Technologies Inc. in Kelowna for a year as a Human Resources Analyst. As an HR Analyst I support payroll and administer benefits, help deliver corporate programs, facilitate the recruitment process from job postings to interviews to onboard new employees. I also assist in developing policies, serve as a point of contact for HR related issues and inquiries and am a co-chair on the Occupational Health and Safety Committee.
I plan on continuing to grow my experience and knowledge with QHR and move up as the company continues to expand. I also plan on obtaining my CHRP designation in a few years.
