Chelsea Kaufmann: Student Success Story
After graduating from university with a degree in psychology and labour studies, Chelsea Kaufmann enrolled in PACE’s Human Resource Management program to gain the skills she needed to follow her passion and find employment.
“Nowadays, it can be very difficult to find a job with a general bachelor’s degree,” she said. “I chose PACE because it seemed like it offered a more concentrated view in the field that I was interested in.”
During the program, Kaufmann got the opportunity to intern with the Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals and is now working with the organization as a Labour Relations Officer. She says her experiences at PACE helped prepare her for the demands of the workplace.
“PACE provided me with exposure to the professional world, it wasn’t all about learning straight from a textbook,” Kaufmann said. “It was about learning from professional’s real-life experiences and learning by doing projects that help prepare you for the real world.”
Thanks to the program’s talented instructors, small class sizes, condensed course delivery, and networking opportunities Kaufmann says she “grew so much both professionally and personally” during the ten-month program.
