Looking for employment?
Job searching can be challenging, but being prepared can relieve some of the stress. Make a one-on-one appointment with one of the staff at CDS. We can help you create or update your resume, draft a cover letter, explore potential job opportunities, identify employers, prepare for a job interview, etc. At CDS, we will show you the difference between a job search and a successful job search.
Unsure of the type of work you are interested in?
People at all ages are unsure about what career suits them best. The staff at CDS can help you discover your skills, interests, and strengths which will aid you through the career decision making process. Career counselling assists you in discovering a career path that suits your personality, strengths, and lifestyle.
Need access to a computer & resource equipment?
Each CDS location has a comfortable and quiet Resource Centre where you can make local phone calls, print, photocopy, scan, fax, and use a computer with Internet connection free of charge. A selection of employment-related books and other publications are on hand, and a Job Board is on display with a number of current employment opportunities. There is no need to book the equipment, just drop by during business hours (see below), but please keep in mind that use of this equipment is for job search purposes only.
