Event description

Description

We hosted a similar meeting in April with lots of positive feedback and we've asked to collaborate again with the Calgary Public Library.

In this Laid Off Calgary meeting we will learn how the Calgary Public Library can help you with your job search and make the transition to employment (or other pathways!) more productive and enjoyable. The meeting will be co-facilitated by a Calgary Library information specialist.

Laid Off Calgary meetings provide connection, support, resources and empowerment during these economically challenged times. Meetings are free and are often co-facilitated by volunteer coaches, recruiters, motivational speakers, industry subject matter experts and other community leaders with a common spirit of sharing knowledge and support.

We ask that you register in advance (here in eventbrite) and note that in the Laid Off Calgary meetings we respect confidentiality, we are non-judgemental, we listen, and we share from our own experience.

Please note the location is meeting room #1 at the Central (downtown) library.

The meeting is 90 minutes. These meetings are open to first-timers (new to Laid Off Calgary) and regulars.

We start by establishing some ground rules for the discussion then the facilitators invite conversation. With peer support participants can learn from others facing similar issues, feel more connected to others, pick up interpersonal skills and internalize lessons.

In this meeting, a very knowledgeable and friendly Calgary Public Library Information Specialist will share:

  • Information on Calgary Library career specific resources

  • Effective employer researching and career exploration

  • Accessing e-learning resources, further education options

For any questions you can contact the event organizer: Bianca Sinclair by confidential email to laidoffcalgary@gmail.com or visit our website www.laidoffcalgary.com
