Looking for employment?
Job searching can be challenging, but being prepared can relieve some of the stress. We encourage you to make an appointment with a Career Practitioner at CDS.
A Career Practitioner can help you:
- Create or update your resume
- Write a cover letter
- Explore job opportunities
- Identify potential employers
- Prepare for a job interview, and more.
Our staff are up to date on labour market trends & current job opportunities are posted daily on our Job Board.
At CDS we are here to support you every step of the way.
Unsure of the type of work you are interested in?
Meeting with a Career Counsellor at CDS can help you discover your skills, interests, and strengths, and will guide you through the career decision making process.
Career counselling supports the discovery of a career path that suits your personality, strengths, and lifestyle.
People of all ages can be unsure about which career & training opportunities suit them best. You can start by exploring careers through our free online tool - Career Cruising.
Need access to a computer & printer?
Each CDS location has a comfortable and quiet Resource Centre where you can make local phone calls, print, photocopy, scan, fax, and use a computer with Internet connection free of charge.
A selection of employment and training materials are available, and we have a?Job Board displaying local employment opportunities.
You can call us or drop by during business hours, but please keep in mind that use of this equipment is for job search purposes only.
