Driving forward with career goals in Canada
Name: Victor Munoz
Coop work experience: Account manager | GMC
Taken diploma programs: Customer Relations Specialist – Digital Marketing Specialist
With extensive experience in the automotive industry gained in his native country of Chile, Cornerstone student Victor Munoz came to Canada with his family in 2020. With his vast experience, he wanted to use his skillset from Chile to find employment in the Canadian marketplace. Victor enrolled at Cornerstone College to align his technical skills with the soft skills and Canadian workplace culture taught on the Customer Relations Specialist diploma program (CRS).
Attending CRS classes at Cornerstone offered Victor the opportunity to do a paid Co-op at Carter GM in Burnaby, BC, where he is a leading salesman for the team. The CRS program equips students with the skills to develop successful careers in customer-facing roles in Canada.
“The Co-op team matches students to opportunities in Vancouver and is available to help students to find Co-op placements in the local business community. Victor was one of my top students and his passion and desire to succeed in Canada was apparent throughout the course. I am delighted to see he has found the job he was looking for.”
Martin Presse – CRS program coordinator
The automotive industry in Canada is rapidly growing and Thomas King, president of the data and analytics division at J.D. Power said, “Despite low inventory, August 2021 will be another record-breaking month for the auto industry. Building on the strength that began in Q4 2020 and continued through Q1 2021, the industry will set records for sales volumes, transaction prices, consumer expenditure and retailer profitability.”
“The CRS course gave me the tools to enable a smooth transition from the automotive industry in Chile to enable me to find success here in Canada. The course is outstanding, and I can’t say enough about the help I received from the Cornerstone team.”
