They will complete our training program which includes licensing, products and systems training, building the skills to deliver a great client experience, and then the opportunityto work in the company’s LIVE program where they will speak with clients while being supported by our training team,” says Marianne Morton, Manager of the Client Care Centre. The initiative has been very successful, and this year several students were offered and accepted full-time positions with Desjardins!
