The Radium Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce and Radium Visitor Information Centre are pleased to present the first Job Search & Resumé Preparation Workshop.

On June 1 at the Radium Information Centre, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., the workshop will help lead participants through the job search process.

“It’s about offering more services throughout the Valley,” said Jessica Tegart, visitor information counsellor and community access program youth intern through Industry Canada.

Tegart helped to spearhead the upcoming workshop.

“I really wanted to get a job search and resumé workshop in Radium, because not everyone can contact the CV Employment Centre here,” she said.

“It occurred to me one day that we need this to happen in Radium. We’re really excited and looking forward to it.”

The focus rests on how to structure your resumé and cover letter, how to search for jobs online and offline, and obtain interview skills.

The workshop will be lead by an employment counsellor from the Columbia Valley (CV) Employment Centre.

It will be done in lecture-format with free coffee and doughnuts available.

“I’d spend hours helping someone with a job search website. It inspired me to have someone with expertise to come and help,” said Tegart.

While this workshop is a first-time event, Tegart is optimistic for a good turn-out and possible opportunities for similar workshops in the future,

“I think we would have another, if it shows that people are benefiting from it,” she said.

The workshop has a maximum limit of 10 participants. To RSVP your spot, call the Radium Information Centre at 250-347-9331.

The Radium Information Centre offers free access to fax, printers, and computers to those who do not have one or need help accessing the Internet.

Personalized help with resumés can be booked with the CV Employment Centre.
