Resource Counselor/Workshop Facilitator, Picton, ON - 28 March 2013
Good work environment where team work is essential in meeting stats and goals. Mostly a laid back work environment with exception to peek job seasons. The job is very routine and basic which makes learning quick and easy. Very minimal supervision as the supervisor is very busy. Customer service skills and patience are a must for the job, as well as good written and oral abilities to help advise clients on resume writing, interview skills and other employment related topics. The hardest part of the job is learning the ministry rules and regulations and learning to teach clients skills to become independent in their job search. The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of seeing your clients achieve employment, education, self-employemnt or apprenticeship success. The downfall of the job is that there is not much room to grow as it is a small agency, which also includes minimal benefits. The pay rate is fair, however, raises are minimal. Overall, a good job depending on how far you want to build your career.
