MH Enterprises has rolled out a new program to help job seekers and employers.
One-on-One Employment Services provides compressive and individualized services to job seekers and employers. This is a new program through Alberta Community and Social Services that helps potential employees acquire skills and to transition back to work.
“One side of the program is for job seekers, people needing help with resumes, job searches, skill development in terms of identifying transferable skills and coming up with areas where they could market themselves,” explains MH Enterprises Workplace training coordinator Sagan Gordon.
This includes resume and cover letter developments support for job searchers, assistance in developing job interview skills, and career counselling services.
“The other component is more employer directed, where we could actually post jobs on their behalf and then try to find them individuals to fill the position, so there is a job placement component,” said Gordon.
Another critical component of the program is exposure courses. Gordon explains these assist employers who may have found a match, but the potential employee requires support developing some skills needed for the job.
“With a job confirmation letter, we could fund the training for that individual up to $2,500,” she said. “This is to bridge the gap for employers if they think the person is a really good personality fit, for example, but needs that little bit of extra to get them ready for the job they are going to do.”
The program also provides human resource management for employers to help with search and hiring, whether that means job positions, pre-screening résumés all the way up to providing space for interviews.
