Are you familiar with Work BC’s Employment Services Resource Centre? If so, you will have already experienced the multitude of services available to you. If not, acquaint yourself with the services we offer and the people you’ll be working with.
Everyone at the Nelson and Castlegar WorkBC offices are committed to meeting the employment needs of our community. Our Employment Services Resource Centre is your first impression of who we are and we believe in making a very strong first impression.
JOB SEEKERS: All job seekers, regardless of your current employment situation, are welcome to come and meet with one of our Employment Specialists and to use the resources available.
EMPLOYERS: We meet with many motivated and skilled job seekers every day, and are ready to connect you with the one who will be the right employee for your business’s needs. Give us a call or pop in and visit, and we’ll post your ad on our website and job board, as well as refer anyone who we believe will be a great fit for you.
You will find computers, a photo copier/fax/scanner, a client phone, an up to date job board, and many take-home resources to support you to compile the perfect application. All of these resources are available for your employment related activities.
A private office is available for local employers to conduct interviews, as well as for the job seeker to use for phone or video interviews. This space can also be used for completing online training and exams, which we can invigilate if approved by the training institution.
The greatest resource you’ll find in the Resource Centre is our people. Our Self-Serve Specialists are ready to help you create a stand out resume and cover letter, or to update your current one. If you’re eligible, they’ll refer you to an appointment with one of our excellent Case Managers if you require some extra guidance. Looking for training or certifications? The Employment Specialists will point you in the right direction. And much more!
We recognize that asking for help or discussing your employment situation may be uncomfortable for some. Our Employment Specialists Rae, Cheri, Cheryl, Gayla, Bob, and Sarah are committed to creating a warm and welcoming environment for everyone, and for addressing your needs with the utmost compassion and confidentiality.
