Our Employment Services is an based on a integral model that combines the support from the Employment Team, and other departments such as Settlement, Access English Centre, Workplace Entry Program, Nutrition Program and Computer Lending Library.
Our working model is broken into three different stages. Stage one consists of an individual assessment with a facilitator to review the client’s work experience, education history and the type of job they wish to find. A short-term action plan is also developed by the facilitator while engaging the client to actively participate during the whole process.
Stage two includes job search assistance which is customized for each client based on their Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB’s). The Job Search Workshop includes a classroom presentation and the opportunity to learn how to apply for jobs using the internet. By the end of this stage, all clients receive 10 copies of their resume and a list of references.
Stage three includes optional information about Interviewing Skills, and the opportunity to attend a Job Club every week.
