ERC connects employers with students

The Employment Resource Centre (ERC) at North Island College wants to know what you think.

The Employment Resource Centre (ERC) at North Island College wants to know what you think.

How would employers like to work with the ERC?

What services do local employers require?

What kind of community support is needed and in what areas?

How can the ERC help you?

These are the questions that Treena Nadon, North Island College (NIC)’s employment service advisor, is asking in a survey that was sent out by e-mail last week to all members of the Comox Valley and the Campbell River chambers of commerce.

“In essence, I’m hoping to find the best way to connect employers with our students,” stated Nadon. “I’m looking for ways to strengthen opportunities for students while meeting the needs of the community.”

NIC’s Employment Resource Centre opened its doors in September 2009 and is available to help all employers who are seeking knowledgeable and eager staff.

By assisting students in gaining meaningful employment, the ERC serves as a bridge for accessing quality positions posted by employers in our community. Employers may also access students from NIC’s Co-operative Education programs for targeted busy periods and special projects or to cover short-term leave.

“Now is a great time to further develop our resources for employers within the communities we serve.  I welcome community involvement in making this service the best it can be,” continued Nadon.

The survey began on Sept. 21 in Courtenay and Sept. 23 in Campbell River, and it will end Oct. 21.

The purpose of the survey is to enhance the ERC’s ability to support employers, with a secondary goal to determine how many employers (and from what industry) are interested in hiring NIC’s Co-operative Education students.
