Employment Counsellor, Welland, ON - 6 November 2012
Had a great experience while at the Job Gym. I was able to improve my office administrative skills and learned to be an employment counsellor. It was my first counselling career. I was unfortunately only covering a maternity leave and therefore just take the great experiences with me. In this position I met with clients on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. I would assist clients with resume writing, job search skills and interviewing techniques. I would lead or assist facilitation of job search workshop sessions for 10 to 50 people as well as travel offsite to conduct workshops at other locations. I completed intake assesments and provided community resource information. I advocated for my clients to the Job Developers to bring forth their skills that may match the available jobs.
