    I would love to participate in this conference. I think I could learn from the experiences and advice of Mr. Rupert Whiting.

    • Cornerstone

      That’s awesome Marilin, we would be glad to see you at the event!

  • Herrera Cervantes Elsi Jazmin

    Hi Good afternoon, a question for Mr.Rupert Whiting what position and roles are in demand now in Vancouver ?

    • Cornerstone

      Hi Herrera, thank you so much for your question! Many jobs exist in manufacturing and production, delivery drivers are in high demand, retail has a high turnover of staff so these jobs come up often. Hospitality jobs are slow currently but are expected to really take off in 6+ months. It all comes down to having a great attitude and being willing to work hard. Once you get that initial local experience it should be easier to find roles as your local network develops and grows.
