650 peo­ple took part in the 4th edi­tion

of the Mois de la for­ma­tion et des per­spec­tives d’em­ploi which took place in the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC be­tween March 20th and April 20th.

Some ac­tiv­i­ties were bet­ter at­tended than oth­ers, such as Stanstead’s an­nual Ren­dez-vous des

gens d’af­faires that at­tracted 65 peo­ple, the Job Speed Dat­ing event which at­tracted more than 200 job seek­ers, and the con­fer­ence by en­tre­pre­neur Alex Gagnon-Sck­o­ropad which was at­tended by twenty. Dur­ing the job seek­ers and em­ploy­ers panel or­ga­nized by the Cen­tre d’ori­en­ta­tion et de recherche d’em­ploi (CORE), the 31 par­tic­i­pants were happy to hear the ad­vice from UsiHome, the CSSS Mem­phrem­a­gog and Adecco.

The break­fast and the ‘5 a 7’ for job seek­ers gave 35 peo­ple an op­por­tu­nity to net­work. Three CV and in­ter­view ac­tiv­i­ties helped pre­pare 30 peo­ple for fu­ture in­ter­views and stages with the city of Ma­gog and the CSSSM helped fif­teen peo­ple de­cide their fu­ture ca­reer. Ca­reer Day in Pot­ton was at­tended by fif­teen young peo­ple who found out all about two em­ploy­ers in their re­gion.
