Career Counselling

If you are in the process of trying to decide if it’s time for a career change, but don’t know how to get the ball rolling, set up an appointment with a career counsellor here at OVRC. You will be given the time and space to reflect on and identify your values, skills, attributes, work experience and personality type—all of which are vital to career exploration.

Career Counselling safely in the age of COVID!

Next, you will be provided with career exploration resources that will provide you with detailed information on occupations in the various sectors that make up the Canadian economy. With this information, and the criteria you have identified in your self-reflection, you will be able to choose an occupation that fits your needs, goals and aspirations.
Working with your career counsellor in the final phase you will develop a specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely action plan to get moving towards your career goal. Gaining knowledge of the career exploration process is a life-long skill set that will not only help you move towards your next career goal, but will also be invaluable in helping you continue to set goals for set goals for job satisfaction in the future. You will:

  • Take an inventory of skills, values and attributes
  • Get the tools to research careers and jobs
  • Learn how to get up-to-date information about an occupation
  • Start building a new professional network
  • Develop an action plan to help you attain your goal

Career Counselling safely in the age of COVID!

The safety of our clients and staff is a top priority for us, which is why we have the following safety precautions in place for our Career Counselling appointments:

  • a webcam for Zoom workshop facilitation and remote appointments when required.
  • a wireless mouse and keyboard for working with in-office client appointments (Laurie might have had some say in the colour of the keyboard… she LOVES the green!)
  • clients are seated 6 feet away, we are masked and have a protective shield between us; yet, we can still explore and work with the computer together!

We are looking forward to many productive and engaging meetings with clients! Call 204-989-6503 to book an appointment today.

"This place really helped me in my time of need. I was struggling with my previous job mentally, emotionally and physically. The counsellors are compassionate, supportive, and just a lot of fun. They take their time with you, as much as you need, and as often as you can, to help you move on to a new form of employment. I have and will recommend this place for anyone who is needing a change in their employment. They have excellent knowledge of using the right information and key words to make your resume and cover letters stand out in an application. I couldn't be more thankful to them."

Happy New Year Mr Robinson

I would like to express my experience that I had when dealing with your professional team at your center which indeed have changed a lot in my job search.

My experience in your center was very rich by the fact that I benefited from guidance services, CV, cover letter, how to pass an interview and Branding statement...etc.

Because of these workshops, I had the pleasure to work with Laurie, Betty, Kristina, John, Judy and Lisa, they were all amazing and very professional.

It is difficult for me to find the exact words to express my gratitude and to thank each member of this great team that you have but, above all, I would like to especially thank Betty for her good work, I was able to get my first job. in Winnipeg plus I got a lot of encouraging feedback from other employers. I also would like to thank Laurie, because of her I was able to understand and have love in what I do and also how to search for future jobs with love.

In short, you guys are simply a magnificent and professional team I have ever worked with.

Thanks again and Happy New Year
