In week one we will provide an orientation to NIEFS and an overview of the many services and supports available to British Columbian Job Seekers through Work BC.

In week 2 we explore effective strategies for self marketing including targeted resumes and cover letters, references, writing for maximum impact, developing strategic content, and where/how to get help with these pieces.

In week 3 we look at the realities of job search in challenging times. We will talk about what has changed, what the implications are, digital skills, online job boards, virtual interviews, and working from home.

In the final session, we focus our time on how to approach employers. We will look at the hidden job market, networking, informational interviews and using social media as a tool job search.

We recognize your experience and value your input. Guests of the virtual Job Seeker's Café are encouraged to share insights, experiences, job leads, and tips/strategies with others throughout the series!
