Train­ing Pro­gram Launched

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Stanstead em­ploy­ers re­united at the Pat Burns Arena last Wed­nes­day for the an­nual busi­ness peo­ple gath­er­ing or­gan­ised by the Em­ploy­a­bil­ity Com­mit­tee. Over 20 em­ploy­ers have agreed to ad­here to the I Stanstead pro­ject which of­fers a train­ing pro­gram for in­di­vid­u­als who are hav­ing dif­fi­culty in­te­grat­ing into the job mar­ket. By ad­her­ing to

the pro­ject, em­ploy­ers agree to pay more at­ten­tion to job ap­pli­ca­tions of in­di­vid­u­als who have taken the course.

The pro­gram was cre­ated in an at­tempt to in­crease the em­ploy­ment ac­tiv­ity level, to as­sist em­ploy­ers who are hav­ing prob­lems re­cruit­ing new em­ploy­ees and to sup­port in­di­vid­u­als who wish to im­prove their skills.

In­di­vid­u­als who wish to in­crease their chances of suc­cess in their job search­ing process are in­vited to con­sult the pub­lic­ity com­ing from the Des Som­mets School Board. Once they have com­pleted the course, job seek­ers will be awarded a cer­tifi­cate which will give them an ad­van­tage when they are ap­ply­ing on jobs opened in busi­nesses which have ad­hered to the pro­gram. Most im­por­tantly, th­ese in­di­vid­u­als will in­crease their per­sonal knowl­edge in re­gards to job search­ing.

Em­ploy­ers who have not had the chance to ad­here to the pro­gram are in­vited to con­tact Joanne La­je­unesse-McKay at 819 876-5215.

Job seek­ers can get more in­for­ma­tion by con­tact­ing the lo­cal CLE.
