Resume Workshop

Whether you are looking to tweak your existing resume or starting completely from scratch: this workshop will give you the opportunity to brush up on the trends in resume theory, deconstruct job postings for better tailoring/customization and explore ways you can better market yourself to employers. After completion of this full day workshop, participants will get the opportunity to book a 1-on-1 follow up session with a facilitator to receive individualized feedback. Participants are asked to bring a sample job posting to this workshop.

Ace the Interview 

Often times the final stage of the selection process, the job interview can sometimes feel like the most daunting. This two-day workshop will give insights into the approaches and techniques that you can use to prepare for and ace your next job interview. By the end of the workshop, participants will be given the opportunity to conduct a mock interview and receive immediate feedback. To customize these mock interviews for each of our attendees, participants are asked to bring a sample job posting to this workshop.

Hidden Job Market

Statistics show that only about 15% to 20% of jobs available in Nova Scotia are openly advertised. For those of us struggling to break into this market, we will want to focus on expanding our job search into the remaining 80% to 85%, commonly referred to as the Hidden Job Market. This two day workshop explores why the Hidden Job Market exists, and how effective networking strategies can help you unlock those opportunities.

Career Planning 

Seeking a change or new career? Recently graduated and unsure of what you want to do? Generally unsure of what your next journey is going to be? Career planning is an ongoing process that we all undergo as our personal vision changes throughout our lifetime. Throughout the course of this full day workshop, you will be guided through a variety of assessments, discussions and explorations that will help kickstart your career decision making process.
