I really look forward to coming to work every day at NLC!
Human Resources Generalist (Current Employee) – Slave Lake, AB – 10 October 2018
Each day i will learn something new at NLC, I will be challenged to problem solve and work independently or in a team, I will laugh and smile and be serious or inquisitive. My Management team are supportive, and will give me challenges to stretch me to grow as an employee. Opportunities for growth in my profession are encouraged. We like to see others successful in the workplace and strive for top notch service for our clients. It never really gets hard but sometimes it can get demanding as many tasks are time sensitive. What i enjoy most about my work at NLC is the people who come to school here and the people who work here, it makes me feel good to be part of a culture where you can start here and go anywhere.
Student (Former Employee) – Grouard, AB – 3 November 2017
This is a great place to start an career, especially trades. I started with my academic upgrading and loved it. The hands on teachers were amazing and I am sure anyone who attends will love it as well. The move from upgrading to my first year college student was very easy and convenient. I would definitely recommend Northern Lakes College to any student.

Northern Lakes College is a good college to work for. Benefits and salaries were competitive, and teaching schedules were flexible. The teaching atmosphere was very good, and we were allowed to experiment new stuff. Teacher developments were good. we were allowed to go to teachers' conventions and development.. It is a good college to work for..

Learning Facilitator (Former Employee) – Peerless Lake, AB – 25 April 2016
I enjoyed the job but not the isolation of a northern First Nations reserve. I liked the honesty and humour of the students. They showed patience with the faulty equipment. I had no co-workers, which was difficult. I had to figure many things out by myself.

Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Barrhead, AB – 10 September 2013
A typical day at work my be challenging as well as rewarding as a nurse. I strive to give the best care possible to my patients. Responsibility of my actions, excellent patient care and using my best approaches to make clinical decisions that are positive for the care I give is important. I am considerate to co-workers and am a team player. The hardest part of the job is attachment to a palliative pediatric. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing when I go home, I have made a difference in my patients life.
