Noreville Orbe


Internationally Educated Chemical Engineer

Noreville Orbe, a chemical engineer from Philippines came to Canada in 2004. Directions for Immigrants provided her with assistance through our career coaching and study group service for the Association of Professional Engineers, Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) National Professional Practice Exam (NPPE).

"The study group sessions helped me pass APEGA exam. The career coaches were very nice and helpful. I truly appreciate the time they spent with participants in discussing the materials covered by the NPPE”.

Noreville also acknowledges how important it was for her to participate in the Directions for Immigrants’ networking activities. In fact, she found her job in project engineering at O’Rourke Engineering as a result of an event she attended. “Directions for Immigrants helped me tremendously in my job search. With the advice and resources I received, I was able to understand the Canadian workplace. Now, every time I meet newcomers to Alberta, I refer them to Directions for Immigrants”.
