From Internship to Career – Humber College
Richard was 11 when his family moved to Canada from Venezuela, searching for opportunities that just weren’t available in their home country
Access to a quality education was a big part of those new opportunities — and Richard eventually decided that Humber’s Bachelor of Commerce in Fashion Management was the ideal fit for him.
Richard had been working in fashion retail for several years before realizing he wanted to take his education further.
“The Fashion Management program’s close connection to the industry gave me peace of mind that it was the right choice,” says Richard, who came to Humber as a mature student.
Richard worked for TJX Canada, the parent company for Winners, Homesense and Marshall’s, during his paid work term between his third and fourth years in the program, eventually landing a full-time job.
“I was able to put all my classroom knowledge to use when I landed my work placement at TJX — and even more so now that I work there full time.”
