Albino Jr Geanga immigrated to Canada several years ago, hoping to start a career in building design.

But even though he already had an Architecture degree from the Philippines, he couldn't get hired without additional training in Canadian building codes and specifications.

Albino decided to take the Building Design Technician program at Herzing College Toronto. He graduated last year, and has successfully re-launched his career here in Canada.

We interviewed Albino to learn more about his story, and find out what he thought of Herzing's Building Design program.  

He told us about the skills he learned, his experience in class, and the design jobs he got after graduation.

He also shared some great advice for new students who want to start careers in building design. Here are the highlights from our interview.
