Welcome to Job Search Workshops Ontario

The JSW Program and You!


“Being a part of the JSW Program was the best thing that happened to me [since moving to Canada over a year ago].  I struggled to send out my resumes to employers and few interviews I got, I always left felt it had gone wrong.  All these were over after I completed JSW workshop in November.  I was then fully equipped to start the ball rolling, with my facilitator, who was so detailed and practical in her approach.  I soon got my first interview invitation a week after completing Module II and guess what? I was offered the position of Retail Sales Manager in Toronto.  I want to say a big THANK YOU to JSW, Pickering Welcome Centre and my facilitator for making my coming to Canada a success.”

"As a stay home Mom for more than five years, I had lost the confidence required for a fruitful and prompt job search. Then I learned about the JSW workshops offered at The Pickering Welcome Centre. Even before the Module I started, the brief session of the assessment that I had with my facilitator gave me the sense of self confidence and of clear objectives with regard to my career and future goals. During the workshop I learned the specific skills to build up a targeted resume and smart techniques like SAR to be successful and confident in preparing for interviews.  I was successful and now work at a CIC funded agency serving the new immigrants.  Words can’t express my deepest gratitude to JSW and my facilitator at The Pickering Welcome Centre."

Originally a High School Teacher, Eva decided to utilize her transferable skills and apply for jobs in the financial industry. Eva expressed the following, "Having a good understanding about the job market and the hiring process are very much important even for an experienced professional in a new country. The JSW program was really helpful and beneficial for me in finding the right job. I found the interview practice sessions very interactive and informative without which I would have not succeeded in my job search and successfully gained employment as a Customer Service Representative in the banking industry.  I strongly recommend JSW at WWCC to all the newcomers as a helping hand in their job searching period."
