Samantha Barrette had zero experience taking apart and repairing appliances when she started the Appliance Service Technician program at Herzing College.
Just eight months later, she landed her dream job as an appliance technician with Trans Global Service. Trans Global is Canada's largest appliance service and installation company, with 300 employees and operations all across the country.
And she got that job even though Trans Global had announced a hiring freeze and wasn't officially looking for new technicians.
We interviewed Samantha last week to find out how she landed such a great position and how things are going in her new job.
We also got her opinion on Herzing's Appliance Service Technician program, what it's like to be a female technician, and her daily life on the job.
Here's what we found out.
