Do you know someone who is unemployed or underemployed? Are you trying to find a different holiday or New Year gift?
If you answered “yes” to either of these questions it might be time to stop by 595 Parliament Street and inquire about the free services that the Centre for Education and Training offers to eligible job seekers. Part of the Cabbagetown neighbourhood for over 10 years, this Career Centre helps job seekers with traditional essentials such as resumes and cover letters, yet it also offers workshops on new necessities including how to use social media for job searching. In addition to workshops, there is one-to-one career coaching available to help develop new approaches to finding income streams in a workplace that can often seem complex and demanding.
Career Specialists provide advice on how applicant tracking systems have changed the way some employers search for new talent, how a focussed career plan can help to obtain goals, and how to increase alliances and network contacts.
Visit 595 Parliament to find out if you, or your job seeker friend or family member, qualifies for career coaching services. Or check www.tcet.com and read their blogs and newsletter. Give the gift of career coaching to someone who might need it.
