Kababayan is the Tagalog word for a fellow countrymen; a fellow Filipino.
A Filipino Immigrant’s Realization
Canada has been “home” for our family for a decade now and if I were to go back to that year when I am still deciding whether I should complete our application for skilled immigrant through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, I will still take the same path.
To celebrate my work anniversary with my current job, I thought of sharing something that is work-related. After a few years of working in Canada, I had numerous discoveries (and learning) about Canadian workplace, including some work practices that I have learned to adapt in the past 8 years.
Nine years ago, I came to Canada with a bachelor’s degree, some credits in master’s degree and more than 10 years of work experience as a HR practitioner.
