Do you find people jobs?
We are not a placement agency so we do not recruit employees for business. However, local employers post employment opportunities in our job binders. Our purpose is to provide guidance and resources to help you find work.
Can you help with my EI claim?
Local Service Canada offices can process your EI claims and give you accurate information regarding their policies. Jobs Caledon focuses on assisting people finding employment and does not deal with Employment Insurance.
Will you prepare a résumé for me?
Jobs Caledon provides two enjoyable and informative workshops every other week covering the Do’s and Don’ts of résumé writing. We will provide you with additional resources to create your own résumé (templates, examples, cover letter books, etc.). Guided by a qualified Employment Facilitator, you create a resume that you can send with confidence!
Why does Jobs Caledon need to know when I get a job?
We want to celebrate your success! With your Jobs Caledon experience, we can learn to modify our program to create more successes with future clients.
Why should I come into the Resource Centre at least once a week?
Jobs Caledon receives new job postings on a regular basis. We also have a variety of special events throughout the year such as job fairs, guest speakers etc. that you don't want to miss!
Why is it important to follow-up with an employer?
Generally, once you have sent out your resume by fax, email or in person, you should follow-up with a phone call to ensure it was received by the correct person. This phone call will show that you are very interested in a position with that company and possibly give you a greater chance of an interview. Our workshop, Tap Into the Hidden Job Market, has other useful tips to use while you are seeking employment.
