"When applying to jobs or attending an interview I feel so confident to tell the employers that I have my recognized qualification to offer the employment opportunities in their companies. "
Why a WES Credential Evaluation is an Important Employment Tool:
Many corporations and organizations require a credential evaluation before they hire a person who has been educated outside of Canada. A WES credential evaluation will validate your education and provide the Canadian academic equivalency.
A prospective employer will be able to select the best-qualified candidate from all applicants, because they can fairly compare educational achievements. Many employers also use an evaluation report to determine pay level, as well as eligibility for promotion.
Employers often request applicants to have their credentials evaluated, before they apply. In this way, there will not be any delay in the recruitment process, waiting for the evaluation to be completed.
Recruiting firms that hire on behalf of employers also prefer that prospective applicants have their foreign credentials evaluated. This enables recruiters to provide accurate information to employers.
Why a Credential Evaluation is Important for You:
With a WES evaluation report, you will know the Canadian equivalency of your academic achievements. When you are applying for a job, you will have confidence from knowing your educational equivalency. When your credential evaluation is from WES, you can feel also feel confident about the fact that WES is the credential evaluation service that is recognized by the Ontario Government.
How to Use Your Evaluation Report:
At the beginning of your resume package, or in your cover letter, be sure to mention that you have had your credentials evaluated by World Education Services (WES) and list all of the credentials that we have validated, with their equivalencies.
We recommend that you also include a copy of your evaluation report with your resume, or inform the employer that you will bring the original to your interview.
