Job Search Workshop (JSW)

Job Search Workshops are designed to help you access labour market information and learn about hiring practices in your field. The program consists of two modules, each one week long, that will answer your questions about working in Canada and prepare you for the Canadian job market.

  • Do I know all of the methods to job search in Canada?
  • How can I market myself to a company using a targeted resume and cover letter?
  • Can I market myself to a company in an interview?
  • Can I do this job where I live?
  • Who do I need to meet and what are my next steps?

What will I learn?

You will refine your job search skills, develop a personalized action plan and learn about strategies that will help you integrate into the labour market in Canada. The program features:

  • Needs assessment by trained assessors

  • Pre-employment workshops conducted in a computerized environment
