HIRE-A-THON Returns

Contributed by Lisa Trudel, Career Specialist, The Centre for Education & Training

 

Are you a job seeker looking for support  for your job search?  Or are you an employer with immediate vacancies to fill with pre-screened applicants?

 
If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, you might want to consider taking part in the Centre for Education and Training’s  Employment Services HIRE-A-THON this Fall.

 
In the Fall of 2015, over 88 days, 1700+ job seekers registered for the Hire-A-Thon and 825 people were hired and 72 hiring events took place!  Due to this success, it has been re-launched on August 29 of this year and will run for 3 months: September, October and November.

 
For job seekers, this campaign includes one-to-one coaching with Career Specialists, job search workshops facilitated by Resource & Information Specialists and Hiring Events focused on a wide range of occupations held at all 6 locations of the Centre for Education and Training.  The Cabbagetown location is at 595 Parliament Street, just 2 doors away from Cranberries Restaurant.

 
The one-to-one coaching includes discussions on employment essentials such as how to be successful at job interviews and how to create a resume that an employer will be interested in reading.

 
For example, did you know that many companies now use “applicant tracking systems” or ATS scanners to rank qualifications against job descriptions?  These ATS scanners will read your resume and cover letter, and then will score your skills.  Only job seekers who receive high scores will get an interview.  So learning how to create a resume to pass the ATS is essential.  If you want to learn more about applicant tracking systems and if you want to be part of the HIRE-A-THON, contact the Centre for Education & Training Employment Services (www.tcet.com) to see if you qualify for their free services.
