Job and training Month hits mark
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.
A large crowd attended the ‘5 à 7’ for business people at the Pat Burns Arena, in Stanstead, on April 16th.
