How does the Resource Room work?
You can use our Resource Room to access a range of invaluable resources, tips and videos that will help you with your job search. You can access them whenever it suits you, choose the resources that are right for you, and work through them at your own pace.
Our resources include guides exploring career planning, resume writing and interview skills. You can also schedule an appointment with
our Service Providers
to discuss specific aspects of your job search requirements.
Can you help me with career planning?
Yes, we can! Having a clear goal in mind when preparing for your job search is very important. It’s important to make sure you understand your career options and what you need to do to reach your goal. Contact us to learn how.
Can you help me with job specific training and qualifications?
We are able to provide funding for certain types of training, depending on your situation. If you’ve got the right skills and just need a particular piece of training, for example ProServe or Forklift Training, to meet the requirements of a job then we can support you. We can only support training courses that are no longer than two weeks long full time, or 6 weeks long part time. All training courses must lead directly to an employment offer or have been requested by an employer when a job offer is made.
I have been laid off and cannot find work in my field, can you help me find a job in another field?
Yes. We help you identify the skills you have that can be transferred into other fields, and then help you identify jobs that would be a good fit for you. We also have access to up-to-date labor market information that will give you the inside track on who is hiring now.
How often will I need to work with Employment Ontario Peel staff?
Everyone is different and it will depend on the type of support you need. Once you’ve registered, we’ll agree a schedule of appointments with you. On average we expect that you’ll communicate with us once a week. The Employment Ontario Peel program is currently accessible online to support you through this unprecedented time. You can speak to your Career Advisor via email, phone and Microsoft Teams.
What is the difference between Employment Ontario Peel and a recruitment agency?
A recruitment agency works directly with employers to find applicants suitable for their job openings. We are not hired by employers to help them fill their job vacancies.
