About this event

Strathcona County Economic Development & Tourism is hosting a series of youth employment workshops. As a result of attending these workshops, youth will increase their feelings of empowerment and self-confidence, be better prepared for entering the work-force, improve communication skills, decrease levels of anxiousness and stress and have increased motivation to go after their goals. These are skills that will set a great foundation and will be developed throughout their careers!

Participants are strongly encouraged to sign-up for all four of the workshops.

Workshop 1 - Job Search Strategies: September 22nd

Join Meghan Pollard from MCG Careers Inc. as she walks participants through the process of job searching and provides insights on how to make the experience easier.

Workshop 2 - What to wear: September 29th

Kristen Carter from The Kartr Group will provide a fun and interactive workshop on what to wear for an interview and on the job. She will look at things to consider when choosing an outfit to make sure that youth feel confident all while ensuring that the look matches the employers' expectations.

Workshop 3 - Interview Skills: October 6th

Tanya Shewchuk from Careers Under Construction will be leading this workshop designed to enhance interview skills. Learn tips, tricks, dos and don'ts of successful interviews. Review common questions and learn how to answer difficult questions. Prepare your answers and practice your new skills in a mock interview exercise.

Workshop 4 - Resume Writing: October 13th

Tanya from Careers Under Construction will conclude the workshop series with resume writing. This will be a hands on workshop (computer provided) where youth can learn how to create a cover letter and resume that will get noticed.

Note: the first three sessions are being held at the BGC of Strathcona County (downstairs in the Park Centre Hotel building) and the fourth workshop will start in the Community Centre Meeting Room 2 (401 Festival Ave down from the security desk) and end in the library (401 Festival Lane) on the second floor on the computers.
