triOS GRAD RECOGNIZED BY THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CAREER COLLEGES
Each year triOS College trains hundreds of graduates for their new careers. Mustufa Gangardiwala was one of our 2015 Toronto Campus graduates from the Supply Chain and Logistics program.
The National Association of Career Colleges occasionally chooses graduates from various colleges to feature as Student Success Stories and we are extremely pleased our own Mustufa was one of them!
Mustufa Gangardiwala says it took him about a month to realize that Canadian employers were looking for people with Canadian education and experience.
Raised in Dubai, Mustufa had more than a decade of experience dealing with logistics management at a hardware and building materials company in the United Arab Emirates.
But he couldn’t land a job in Canada. “I realized there are major hurdles for immigrants who come to Canada,” he recalls of his first few weeks in Canada. “My experience of 13 years did not count because it was not Canadian experience.”
Despite attending a long list of job fairs and career seminars, Mustufa says he couldn’t even land an entry-level job.
That’s when he learned about the Supply Chain and Logistics program at triOS College.
A 12-month course that included a four-month internship, the program would quickly give him both the education and experience he needed to kick-start his career in Canada.
Mustufa was quick to enroll and soon found himself learning the intricacies of the Canadian supply chain industry. By the time he started his internship, he says, he already felt at home in the Canadian industry, and he was quickly hired on as a regular employee.
These days, Mustufa is working in warehouse branch support at an industrial supply and safety equipment supplier, where he looks after the overall shipping division.
It’s not quite the same level of responsibility as his old job – a senior position that included managing all aspects of supply chain management – but at least he’s back in the business he loves.
“When people land in this country, they are confused and they don’t know where to go so they end up driving a cab or accept whatever job comes their way,” Mustufa says now.
“The career colleges really give you a path to get further.”
