Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Staff, Ma­gog

There are hun­dreds of jobs avail­able in the re­gion, most, ob­vi­ously, re­quir­ing spe­cial­ized skills or train­ing, how­ever, a lot of en­try jobs are avail­able where you could show your skills and get a shot at ad­vance­ment. The numer­ous ac­tiv­i­ties or­ga­nized for the fourth year by the Car­refour Je­unesse Em­ploi of the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC this month, start­ing next Wed­nes­day, will give you the chance to find a new job.

Plus, par­tic­i­pants will be able to find out about the numer­ous learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties that are avail­able; of­ten some­one doesn’t even know that he has the skills for a cer­tain job. This month- long event is the best place to start and, for once, there are a lot of English ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able in Ma­gog, Stanstead and Man­sonville.

Sher­brooke nurse Ju­lia Eldrige, who is from Man­sonville her­self, is “sup­port­ing a pro­gram that sup­ported me” and will guide the April 6th bilin­gual ‘Choice for the Fu­ture’ ac­tiv­ity.

Some events are specif­i­cally di­rected at English­s­peak­ing job seek­ers. “Since our MRC has many English speak­ers, we are pleased to wel­come Job Links as a part­ner this year,” said Josée Boily, Di­rec­tor of the CJE Mem­phré­m­a­gog. “Job Links will be of­fer­ing job in­ter­view sim­u­la­tions as well as par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pop­u­lar English-lan­guage Job Seek­ers’ Break­fast hosted again this year by CEDEC.”

“Also new this year, we will have a con­fer­ence on men­tal health at work or­ga­nized by Trav-ac­tion. In short there is some­thing spe­cial for ev­ery­one!”

Ac­tiv­i­ties in English start with the Job Seek­ers Break­fast at the Mem­phrem­a­gog Com­mu­nity Learn­ing Cen­tre at Princess Elizabeth School, in st. It is a free break­fast (roundtable for­mat) in a pleas­ant at­mos­phere fea­tur­ing in­for­ma­tion that will make job seek­ing and the re­turn to school eas­ier, in­tro­duc­tion to em­ploy­ment and train­ing ser­vices pro­vided by on­site rep­re­sen­ta­tives from lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions.

On the 28th, in Stanstead at the CLSC, will be held a group ses­sion on how to pre­pare for a job in­ter­view: par­tic­i­pants must bring their ré­sumé and the job of­fer they chose. He or she will then meet two job in­ter­view­ers and pro­ceed to an­swer the in­ter­view ques­tions in English. In­ter­view­ers will pro­vide feed-back on his or her per­for­mance. The same ac­tiv­ity will be re­peated on April 2nd th.

This ac­tiv­ity will tar­get the youth from Phelps Helps but it is also open to all high school stu­dents from Stanstead and the area.
