Sometimes negative experiences cause lasting emotional and physical impacts that create barriers to getting or keeping employment.

KES is offering a new employment program called SHIFT. Participants get paid to attend workshops – this will be done over the internet using Zoom. SHIFT examines what sort of career you might be good at, how to talk to people face to face, how to conquer anxiety around interviews, and how to write a cover letter and resume. You’ll learn computer skills, make connections in the local labour market, upgrade your skills, and research employers.

Four weeks of virtual workshops and support during which you are paid a living allowance. Virtual workshops run 9am – 3:00pm 5 days/week.

Maybe it’s time to make a shift… …to do something different…to change where you’re at…to change where you’re going.

Next intake date TBA in Creston, Cranbrook Fernie and Invermere.
