Standard resources including the Find a Better Job booklet, plus some NEW online groups:

  • Accelerated Job Search Groups: The Accelerated Job Search (AJS) program offers daily check-ins to receive support from other job seekers. It also offers opportunities to learn from employment experts, sharpen job search skills, and share job leads. Meetings are 60–90 minutes long. Please do the orientation first.
  • Job Search Skills Workshops: Four key elements of a job search include writing résumés, finding job leads, networking, and preparing for interviews. You can get training on each of these topics by joining one of the workshops. Most sessions last one hour, and all are run by an employment professional.
  • Ask an Expert: In the Ask an Expert sessions, you can participate in an open forum facilitated by one of our employment professionals. You can come with a question about your own job search, or just listen and get an idea of what other job seekers are experiencing.

Each of these offerings are held over Zoom, an online video and audio-conferencing tool.

Once your profile reaches 90% complete, employers will be able to see it, and this additional exposure may help you to find a new job.
