Sample Answer:

I would like to speak about a seminar that I attended in Delhi. It was about the Canadian study permit guidance and immigration services. I am a pretty strict person about my time, and I hate wasting it. However, that day I didn’t feel like I was wasting my time. 

I was in Delhi last year to receive my degree certificates from Delhi University. I was with my friend. He asked me to come with him to attend a seminar. I agreed, and we reached the venue on time.

After reaching the venue, they asked us to fill a form. I was pretty excited as it is my dream to study in Canada, and I wanted the best available guidance regarding my profile. I submitted all my details and started listening to the host. He was the CEO of that immigration consultancy.  

While I was busy listening to the host, I received a phone call from one of my friends from Toronto. I told him that I am at the seminar to get information regarding the study permit. He was glad to know about my future plans. However, he warned me against the fake immigration agencies and asked me to verify the status of this immigration consultancy. He also told me that a right Immigration consultant must have approval from ICCRC. ICCRC is the national regulatory body that promotes and protects the public interest by overseeing regulated immigration and citizenship consultants and international student advisors.

After spending some time on research, I found that they were not Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants(RCIC). Due to this, I felt I had wasted my precious time, and on top of it, I gave confidential information such as my cell no and educational details to a non-RCIC immigration agent.

That’s how I wasted my time. Did you ever waste your time? Let us know when and how in the comment section.
