Anum Shahid

Congratulations Anum Shahid. Another Blaze Your Trail volunteer employed!

Anum lives in Ontario, Canada and has been joining us for our morning classes since January. Anum has volunteered on several pro bono projects, most recently for Olivia's Place in Warragul.

Anum has a degree in Medical Technology from the DOW University of Health Sciences.

When she married and moved to Canada in 2015 she was unable to work in this field as her qualifications were not recognised - something that many migrants face.

Soon after she welcomed two beautiful children into the world. 

In 2021 Anum set about learning Salesforce, and passed her Administration Certificate Exam last October. She joined Blaze Your Trail's work experience program in January and gained lots of confidence through our pro-bono charity projects.  

This week Anum starts her new role as Sales Administration Coordinator at Picton Mahoney Asset Management.

Anum said “Every time I attended the morning meeting I was stepping into the future (quite literally as Australia is 12 hours ahead of Canada). Blaze Your Trail helped me gain a lot of confidence which soon started reflecting in the interview process. I joined Blaze your Trail and learned how to implement Salesforce in real time with interaction with clients on an individual basis. Talking to clients and gathering their requirements really opened up the world of Salesforce for me, thank you Jessica and all of the Blaze your Trail members.”

Thank you for all your great volunteering and teamwork Anum. We are so happy for you! #firstjobintechnology #firstjobinCanada
