I had excellent experience with NIC Online and it solved my employment related queries quickly and efficiently.

The registration was very quick and easy, and I appreciated the live call I had with the specialist. I was told about so many settlement and employment services that I had not even heard of before coming to Canada. I was most surprised that this is a free service!

Mona Ali is very helpful and did a great job with my resume. She always responded with a lot of concern and worked on my resume quickly. I highly recommend this service for any newcomers to Canada.
