Finding employment in today’s competitive job market can be challenging.
Knowing how to write an effective resumé, how to communicate with potential employers and having confidence in your career choices can help make the process easier.
In January and February, the Cumberland Community Schools Society (CCSS) is partnering with the Creative Employment Access Society/Work BC to offer a series of free Employment Workshops in Cumberland.
The evening workshops will run every Wednesday evening from Jan. 30 to Feb. 13 at Cumberland Elementary School from 7 to 9 p.m.
The series begins with a resumé-writing workshop. With the help of a facilitator, participants will learn to create an effective resumé targeted to a specific job.
On Feb. 6, the workshop will focus on interview skills with the opportunity to learn and practice strategies for answering questions. The final workshop introduces tools and resources to research job ideas.
There is no charge for the workshops, but participants must register in advance by contacting CCSS program co-ordinator Sue Loveless at 250-336-8521 or email@example.com.
