If you are still looking for work and are wanting additional help with your job search, the classroom based program Fast Track to Employment  is starting very soon - February 10th . There is no charge to attend this program and the main focus is to help you find work in Hospitality, Customer Service, Production or Manufacturing.  

It will be a very intense program so that you can develop the skills required to find work quickly. The classroom schedule includes three workshops a week that are each three hours long. Two of these workshop sessions  will be in the classroom, and one session will be in the computer lab to  increase your computer skills and to apply for jobs on line. 

Many participants find a job by the end of the 8 weeks of workshops, but if you have not found work by then, you will receive an additional 8 weeks of one to one assistance in order to find work.   

The first step is to attend an information/registration session to hear more about the program. The information session is about 1 and ½  hour in length and will give you a good overview of what to expect and also how you might benefit from attending the program.

Please choose the session that best suits your schedule, and then email or call Joni to let her know that you will be attending:

•         January 30th, 2014 at 10 am 
•         February 3, 2014 at 2 pm
•         February 5, 2014 at 4 pm

All information sessions and workshops will be held at the
247 FIRST AVE location of Saskatoon Open Door.

Feel free to share this information with your family and friends who might also be interested in attending.
