- creating a resume
- researching occupations and pathways to employment

In our Wellness Centre our Job Board is updated weekly with current employment opportunities.
Right now there is a high need for many seasonal jobs in areas of retail and hospitality services. Sometimes seasonal employment is a good start to new workers and helps you develop your resume and gain skills and connections along the way. The good thing to about seasonal work is that it doesn't last forever so it is a win-win to put a few dollars in your pocket for the upcoming holiday season.
