CIES and Alberta Works - Upcoming Job Search Boot Camp

C.I.E.S believes that strong community partnerships are the best way to have both a meaningful and sustainable impact on the life of immigrants here in Calgary.

We are affiliated with a number of key organizations including the Alberta Association of Immigrant Serving Agencies, Immigrant Sector Council of Calgary, Calgary Chamber of Volunteer Organizations, the Ethno-Cultural Council of Calgary, Immigrant Services Calgary, Calgary Public Library, Calgary Immigrant Women Association, Women in Needs Society, Centre for Newcomers, Calgary Catholic Immigration Services, Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth, Bow Valley College, Mount Royal University, The University of Calgary and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and Initiatives for Change amongst others.

CIES often contributes to the community through voluntarism as well and the 22nd and 23nd of this month, will be doing so at the Alberta Works Job Search Boot Camp. EST Coordinator David Wright will attend, offering counselling and support of the event as well as presenting to participants of the camp what CIES has to offer. We are always happy to assist Alberta Works, Alberta Human Services, as well as Alberta Jobs, Skills,Training and Labour in the tremendous contributions they make to the Calgary community whenever we can.

The Boot Camp offers the same program each day and is not a two day event nor a job fair, but a workshop designed to improve one's job search skills. This invaluable and free workshop runs from 8:30 to 3:00 pm at Civic building on Third, 130 3 Avenue SE. Registration can be done online at the link below and in doing so will help participants:

  • Whip resumes into shape
  • March confidently into an interview
  • Learn how to build a team of support
  • Work with a job search personal trainer during the day
  • Receive coaching tips from HR professionals
  • Find out where to find follow up support
