Get the Skills, Land the Job; Cape Breton Partnership’s Connector Program to host human resources workshopsApril 23, 2020

Did you ever wonder how to showcase your skills and get an interview?  If yes, the Cape Breton Partnership’s Connector Program encourages you to register for Get the Skills, Land the Job, a virtual workshop series taking place April 28 to May 1, 2020.

Hosted by Tanya Sieliakus, Owner of HR Pros Inc., the workshops will focus on understanding the job to get an interview, writing a resume and cover letter, and effective self-promotion. Content will be relevant for new grads, job seekers, and people who are new to Cape Breton.

“As we practice self-isolation to protect ourselves and communities, making professional connections for job seekers is more challenging than ever,” says Robyn Lee Seale, Cape Breton Connector Program Coordinator. “Hosting these virtual workshops is one way we hope to help Cape Bretoners across the Island looking for employment from the safety of their own homes.”

One workshop will be focused on project-based industries such as Engineering and IT.  The second workshop will be useful for people in all other industries, including those who studied Arts, Business, Administration or Human Resources.

Workshop details are below:

  • Workshop one: Get the Skills, Land the Job: Project – Based Industries (Engineering & IT)
    • When: Tuesday, April 28, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Wednesday, April 29, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • To register, visit
  • Workshop two: Get the Skills, Land the Job: General Session (Arts, Business, Administration & Human Resources)
    • When: Thursday, April 30, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.; and Friday, May 1, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
  • To register, visit

The workshops have been coordinated by the Cape Breton Partnership’s Cape Breton Connector Program, a program focused on connecting Cape Breton’s business community with top talent. Through the program, recent post-secondary graduates or those new to Cape Breton with postsecondary education meet with Cape Breton business leaders to grow their professional network.

Robyn Lee Seale adds, “We also want to thank NSCC, Northside Economic Development Assistance Corporation (NEDAC), the YMCA of Cape Breton Nova Scotia Works, and Cape Breton University for their support in promoting this workshop to ensure we reach those who will benefit the most.”
