The founder of Train & Get Hired (TGH) used to work in finance and investment for a bank in downtown Toronto for 4 years. He got bored with his job and one day he recalled his own experience of getting his 1st professional job. He looked around and there are thousands of students graduating every year are looking for a job in the financial sector. “What if I can really help these students get the job that fits into their experience/profile?” – That was how TGH, a full-service employment & training company was born.
Next, he didn’t know how to name his company, so he thought “Maybe, I just put what I do as a name of my company” – Thus, Train & Get Hired.
From then on, he has discovered a new career path that was more fun and meaningful. Every student is a “project”, from assessment –> planning –> training –> getting a job, it is a roller-coaster job hunting ride with rewarding experience after all the ups and downs which is: the student gets a nice job to start building his professional career.
Along the way, he on-boards same-mindset corporate professionals (working in finance, accounting, marketing…etc), who find it meaningful in training and helping students besides their corporate jobs, to join his team. They utilize their own job hunting and hands-on work experience, which is an “idle” resource when they work for their companies, to train and help students get jobs.
