    Hello,
    I am interested in a career with Kamloops Immigrant Services, and I am wondering where I may find postings. I am a University Graduate with a Liberal Arts degree, and have experience teaching both international children and young adults. I would be happy to forward my resume and a cover letter if there are currently any available positions.

    Best,
