Employment Assistance Services

We offer direct one-on-one support with job searches, writing resumes and cover letters, and job interview preparation, in addition to hosting regular workshops on a variety of job search and employment readiness tips.

Employment Assistance Services is funded by Manitoba Education and Training. The goal of this program is to assist clients to prepare for, find and retain jobs by providing short-term employment preparation services. These services are offered to allow for participants to become self-sufficient in executing employment searches and be successful in securing meaningful employment opportunities.

  • Master/target resume development
  • Cover letter assistance
  • Career coaching/employment counseling
  • Employable skills identification
  • Job search assistance – tips on accessing the hidden job market, networking
  • Support with preparing for interviews, including mock interviews
  • Help with filling out online applications or with emailing applications
