Spotlight on Employment

What is Spotlight?

Spotlight is a 6-week group based job search support program. Support can continue as long as you need – If you do not find employment during the 6-week program, our two facilitators will continue to work with you until you do.

After you find employment, they will continue to check in and help you, even find a different job if the first one is not the best fit.

What makes Spotlight special?

The real spotlight is on YOU! We want you to be successful, which means you defining what success means for you.

We focus on:

  • What work you are interested in

  • Effective resumes and cover letters
  • Interview skills and practice
  • Increasing skills – First Aid, Food Handlers, WHMIS, etc, based on interests
  • Employer presentations on areas of interest
  • Support making sure you feel more confident job searching and starting a new job

Spotlight is about YOU and what YOU NEED.
