Training Program Launched
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.
