New job search ser­vice for An­glos

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Ajob search ser­vice ai­med at En­glish spea­king people that has been run­ning in the re­gion since Sep­tem­ber is not being as well uti­li­zed as or­ga­ni­zers had ho­ped.

Ré­seaux Em­ploi En­tre­pre­neur­ship was crea­ted in res­ponse to an in­crease in the num­ber of En­glish-spea­king people li­ving in the Vau­dreuil-Soulanges area. The resource that’s unique to the re­gion seeks to bridge the gap bet­ween En­glishs­pea­king job see­kers and the job mar­ket.

Club method

The pro­gram uses what it calls the club method, which it says has an 80 percent suc­cess rate. The method is an in­ten­sive th­ree weeks pro­gram pai­ring an em­ploy­ment counselor with a group of six to eight job see­kers. Du­ring the time job see­kers par­ti­ci­pate in work­shops fo­cu­sing on such things as per­so­na­li­ty tests, re­sume and let­ter wri­ting, ex­plo­ring the hid­den job mar­ket, te­le­phone tech­nique, vi­deo job in­ter­view prac­tice and net­wor­king.

The or­ga­ni­za­tion says the method helps job see­kers feel less iso­la­ted and bet­ter able to face a job search. Spots are still open in se­ve­ral up­co­ming club method ses­sions in­clu­ding one star­ting Jan. 21, 2013 and run­ning un­til Feb. 8. The ses­sion af­ter that will start Feb. 25. Th­ree other ses­sions af­ter the Feb. 25 ses­sion are al­so plan­ned. All are open to par­ti­ci­pants ready to take ac­tion, and who know the type of job they seek. Par­ti­ci­pants 18 years and ol­der must be avai­lable Mon­day to Thurs­day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
