The COVID-19 pandemic has made 2020 an unprecedented year, one that has created many challenges for job seekers and the labour market. To help local residents navigate this difficult environment, Sault College Employment Solutions will be holding a series of six online workshops in November and December on topics relating to job searching during the pandemic, non-traditional employment opportunities, and key life skills such as managing stress and personal finances.

“At Employment Solutions we continue to offer all of our regular services virtually for the protection of both clients and staff,” said Maggie Catterick, Director of Sault College Employment Solutions. “We’ve been delivering webinars for several months now and we’re excited to be branching into some new topic areas with this latest series. We encourage anyone who hasn’t used our services to give us a call. We are here to help and we customize our services to fit the needs of each individual.”
