I had about 20 rough copies because I was so picky on every little detail and trying to ensure it was my very best. Very strong references from my professor of the last two years, and instructor of the last two years, plus reference from my work in regards to my hours. I have over 300+ hours of work experience in disability, plus 40+ hours for Occupational Therapy Assistant and job shadowing at an elderly care centre.
I've applied to everywhere in Canada, this is my dream job and I'm determined to try my very best and get in to wherever I can. I will appreciate any offer given since my end goal is to be an OT I live in Alberta, but from Ontario.
Wishing everyone luck! Never give up
