You are energetic, professional and thoughtful, with strong interpersonal skills, often described as a ‘people person.’ You have a track record of being a strong communicator who can deliver dynamic presentations (both in-person and virtually) to large groups or meet with someone on an individual level. You believe in the value of post-secondary education and you love the idea of being able to provide information on college admissions, programs and student life. You are a relationship builder, whether it is with guidance counsellors, post-secondary sponsors or employment agencies. You have experience working with Indigenous people and have an understanding of Indigenous cultures. You have experience building meaningful connections with First Nations, Metis and Inuit communities.
You are a natural networker who is approachable, professional and personable. You love getting to know others and helping them to achieve their goals. You know how to make a plan and stick to it, but can adapt on the fly when the situation requires it. You are extremely organized and self-driven, coordinating events and travel plans. ‘Life on the road’ is an exciting prospect for you, as you will spend time in communities both inside and outside the province, including northern and remote communities. There is considerable travel throughout the year, so you must hold a valid Class 5 drivers’ license and be comfortable with evening and weekend schedules and overnight trips. You are also keen to learn and use technology in all facets of your job.
