Ziyang Zhang, a 3rd year Commerce student, faced challenges as an international student, yet he managed to take those challenges and create a success story.
“The biggest challenge was the language barrier, however I practiced hard and eventually landed a job with Credit Union Atlantic. I loved the work, loved the people and loved that I was able to enhance my business communication and project management skills. For international students, language fluency is key when seeking a career in Canada. As long as you keep trying and practicing, opportunities will be right around the corner.”
