CIES Offers Coaching at Job Seekers Boot Camp

At the Calgary Immigrant Educational Society, being a part of the city of Calgary's community has been an ongoing priority for nearly three decades now. We recently attended the Boot Camp for Job Seekers, a two day event that took place on May 20th and 21st at the Civic Centre on Third 3rd Ave SE in Chinatown. The event covered all kinds of resources for job seekers and was sponsored by the Government of Alberta (Alberta Human Services Department).

David Wright, our very own Employment Skills Training Coordinator,  spoke at the event on behalf of CIES and served as a coach and mentor at one of the several stations set up to offer and advice and counselling in landing a job here in Calgary. Things like labour market information, self assessment, social media networking, researching employers,  resume writing,  interview skills and an HR panel for Q and A were all part of the workshop. We look forward to attending again next year and invite all those newcomers in their search for work to come down to CIES any time. We're always here to help you.
