Overcoming Employment Barriers

Thursday, February 23, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

How can you overcome an employment barrier?

  • Are you still waiting to hear back from prospective employers?
  • Do you find your job search strategies are helping you to find employment?
  • Are you spending a lot of time looking for a job online without positive results?

Looking for employment can be overwhelming and stressful, especially in a new country. It is a full-time job on its own. Let us help you strategize your job search by providing you with tools to make this experience more effective in accomplishing your employment goals.

Join us to learn new strategies to overcome the challenges to find employment in the Canadian workforce. Those who are Permanent Residents, Landed Immigrants, Protected Persons, Convention refugees, and Live-In Caregivers are especially encouraged to join this workshop.
