Practicum Experience

Practicum Student (Former Employee)
Edmonton, AB

I worked at Alberta Health Services as an intern for less than a year

ProsI had an excellent experience as a practicum student with AHS. The Director gave me excellent work assignments, and training opportunities to help me build my knowledge and skill sets regarding disability management, health and safety principles and practices. Also, the Director was very supportive with introducing me to managers in the insurance industry, which have turned out to be valuable contacts. Networking and developing relationships with others is crucial to acquiring career opportunities in today's competitive job market.

ConsCurrently AHS is going through major changes as an organization, and therefore as a practicum student I didn't see any opportunities in the area of my interest. I am confident that when a suitable opportunity arises that I will be contacted by my practicum supervisor who is in a senior role.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
