The start of every new year prompts people to make resolutions and among the most common ones is finding employment. “People often see January as a fresh start, a new beginning,” says Kathy Mills, CAO, for The Centre for Skills Development & Training. “Securing employment that is meaningful and long-term has huge benefits beyond just the financial stability it brings. It’s part of building a better future and that’s our mandate.”
‘The Centre’ provides free assistance to job seekers. Employment advisors meet with clients and provide one-on-one support for job searching, updating resumés, cover letters, career planning and information on Second Career funding opportunities. As well, all four Employment Services sites offer free access to business directories, tip sheets, computers, printers, scanners, fax machines, telephones and workshops.
People looking for a job can contact the Employment Services site in their area to book an appointment with an Employment Advisor or visit thecentre.on.ca. All services are free and confidential.
