🎙Welcome to The Applicant Podcast. I’m your host, Rebecca Tripp. I’ve graduated from five (5) post-secondary school programs (attending both university and college), I own my own law office now and no, I’m not a lawyer. I’m a licensed paralegal and immigration consultant and on this YouTube channel/podcast, I want to discuss education, immigration, and the law. 🇨🇦

In this week’s episode of The Applicant Podcast I speak with fellow RCIC, Marina V. Synder. Marina has a background in Business Administration, International Commerce, and completed her immigration consultant education at UBC. She is now a RCIC who is also licensed to provide immigration legal services in Québec and Saskatchewan. We discuss her educational background, the immigration consultant profession and her business. She also gives some great tips for those looking to self-represent and for those who would like to work with an immigration consultant or immigration lawyer. If you want to learn more about Marina V.

Side note: Their podcast was one of the first podcasts I was a guest on and it helped me pull the trigger on starting my own podcast. Click here to listen. 

In this episode I get the opportunity to discuss with Erin her path that lead her to becoming a lawyer (including her time in Tel Aviv), her current work in immigration tribunals and detention reviews, along with what she would change in the legal industry if she had the power to do so. It was a pleasure to catch up with Erin and I hope you all enjoy this episode as much as we did!

SHOW NOTES

🎙Welcome to The Applicant Podcast.  I’m your host, Rebecca Tripp. I’ve graduated from five (5) post-secondary school programs (attending both university and college), I own my own law office now and no, I’m not a lawyer. I’m a licensed paralegal and immigration consultant and on this YouTube channel/podcast, I want to discuss education, immigration, and the law. 🇨🇦    

In this mini-solo episode, I discuss practical and actionable ways to avoid burnout! In the legal industry, our jobs can be very demanding at times and I think it’s better to try and avoid burnout than pretend like it won’t happen if we just ignore the signs! In summary, know your priorities, make a list and really be mindful of managing your time! “Quit Quitting” is not an option for many of us running our own businesses, so be proactive with your mental health!
