Hi! I’m Natalia Markman, Career Services Advisor at Toronto Film School/Yorkville University. I have 6+ years of experience providing outcome focused employment counselling to clients from different walks of life.
I started my career in 2016, after completing my Master’s degree in Immigration and Settlement Studies at Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson). At my first job, I assisted 150+ newcomers to Canada with job searching and applications for educational programs. I then switched to working with groups of at-risk youth facing barriers to employment and helped them gain job search skills. I have delivered pre-employment workshops and ensured job readiness for 700+ young people.
After gaining valuable experience in the non-profit sector, I pursued my dream to work in post-secondary and joined Toronto Film School/Yorkville University. I have assisted over 160 students from creative programs with a variety of job search needs. My passion is to help my clients realize their potential, set clear goals and find a job that makes them feel fulfilled.
I immigrated twice in my life, and I understand the nuances of being new to a country, trying to settle down and find your place in a different society. I speak 3 languages and have family and friends spread all over the world. I live in Toronto with my husband and our son who was born in 2022. Outside of work, I enjoy quality family time, hot yoga, ballroom dancing and reading books.
