FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nova Scotia, Canada – Have you ever wondered how you can showcase your skills for a prospective employer before you get to an interview? If so, the Cape Breton, Northern, and Valley Connector Programs invite you to register for Get the Skills, Land the Job, a free virtual workshop series taking place March 8 to March 17, 2022.
The series features Tanya Sieliakus, Owner of HR Pros Inc., and will focus on dissecting job descriptions, writing targeted resumes and meaningful cover letters, and effective self-promotion. This is an excellent opportunity for new graduates, job-seekers, students approaching graduation, and newcomers to Nova Scotia to build their resumes and their confidence in gaining meaningful employment.
Two separate workshops will take place: Workshop One, a general session focused on the majority of employment types (Business, Administration, Trades, Hospitality, Marketing, etc.); and Workshop Two, focused on project-based employment types (Engineering, Architecture, Information Technology, etc.). Each workshop will include two three-hour parts.
“This is a terrific opportunity to learn skills that can help newcomers, new graduates and others who are searching for meaningful employment. Pursuing these workshops virtually allows individuals to gain access to the resources from the comfort of their own home, especially during the pandemic,” says Ayha El-Darahali, Coordinator of the Cape Breton Connector Program. “These workshops are just one of the many resources available through the Connector Program to help job-seekers. If you are interested in expanding your network and taping into the hidden job market, consider joining the Connector program in your region and join the hundreds of professionals who have been successfully connected across Nova Scotia.”
Participants who attend and participate in either workshop fully will be entered into a draw for one of two grand prize packages, which will include Apple AirPods; a professional headshot; professional business cards; and a $50 gift certificate to a local coffee shop in the winner’s community.
