Employment Counselling/Job Development
An employment counsellor can help give your job search direction through exploration and assessment of your current interests and skills. Your Employment Counsellor will help you plan and coordinate a path to higher skill training and employment.
Your employment counsellor will also provide you with job development assistance to help match you with local employers who have job openings in your field of choice. If you are having trouble marketing yourself to employers, job development can help.
YES offers workshops to assist you with all aspects of your job search from career planning to interview skills. We have staff members who will work with you individually, or join one of our group workshops and receive the added benefit of peer support.
