What’s a good example of a career journey? There are so many and they are all unique, just like you! We love collecting information to share with you that may help you make decisions for your own future.

  • Automotive Service Technician Cristel Nelson – Cristel was discouraged from following a trades path but she was determined to become a mechanic. She attended the Motive Power Technician program at Fanshawe College which included a paid summer co-op placement at a dealership; after the school term she was hired as an apprentice and still works there today (as a fully licensed AST).
  • Field Marketing Rep Raquel McLaren – How did Raquel go from nursing school graduate to selling tools for Milwaukee? Build a Dream President Nour Hachem-Fawaz interviews Raquel and discusses barriers associated with working in a male-dominated field, and finding new passions as your career develops.
