Jobs Caledon: Not just another pretty employment centre
With an array of coaching services, Jobs Caledon helped this job seeker return to confidence, writes Monty Laskin
After five years of working with a company, Michelle found herself out of work. Through the diligence of Jobs Caledon’s hands-on personal approach, she discovered that the company she left was not providing a reference she could use to move her to the next step in her career. It was a personal blow as well as a professional blow to her career plans.
This didn’t faze her Jobs Caledon job coach. Nothing ever does with these job hunters! Together, Maureen and Michelle developed a job search plan that included the development of a functional resume to replace her outdated one. Michelle also received an array of coaching services. Jobs Caledon helped her return to confidence, and the plan included strengthening networking skills and interview preparation. For Michelle, it all worked out beautifully.
The piece de resistance, the most important part of this story. Michelle landed a coveted role at Sandals, one of the best-known award-winning hospitality companies worldwide. And yes, her role does involve some travel among the seven countries in which they operate — Antiqua, Bahamas, Granada, Barbados, St. Lucia, Turks and Caicos and Jamaica. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!
Michelle’s job coach, Maureen Tymkow, is currently the manager of Transitions, a new program helping adults with disabilities find meaningful employment. She’s turned her talents on to this specialized field. Maureen and the rest of the Jobs Caledon team can be reached at 905-584-2300 or email@example.com. Visit https://ccs4u.org/job-seekers/.
