We are a non profit, Pre-employment Centre dedicated to assist individuals prepare for a successful job search and/or career change.
Need some guidance with cover letters, interviews, chosing a career or finding a job? The Osborne Village Resource Centre runs several free workshops on these very topics.
I was fortunate enough to have taken several workshops Feb/March 2017 from your very capable facilitators Jude, and Kristina along with Betty who helped me put together a well-organized resume.
I now have an excellent elevator speech/branding statement for myself.
The Acing the Informational Interview workshop gave me the confidence to approach and interview the top grooming and supply business in the city. She has agreed to refer her overflow boarding business to me as boarding/pet sitting is not really her main focus. (She is the supplier for all the Prairie Provinces)
I’ve been doing informational interviews with perspective clients where I walk dogs in the neighborhood.
Scheduling for Success Workshop helps to keep me organized; I can track what I’ve done and what I need to do. I’m also now crystal clear what my best strengths are due to page 8, Branding Yourself. (Outstanding customer service and problem solving)
I’m thankful to know that there is a free referral service for volunteers through Volunteer Manitoba hand-out.
I am continuously referring to my workshop booklets for ideas I forgot.
I left Osborne Village Resource Centre feeling uplifted, confident and valued; thank you so much for the help I received!! I have referred others to contact you and hope that OVRC job/work seeking help will be available for a long time.
