Bow Valley College Career Connection

"Our Career and Employment Assistance Resource Centres offer self-directed and directed services that include access to computers, the internet, fax, printer, telephone and copier as well as extensive resources on the labour market, job search, résumé/cover letter/portfolio and self-employment.

Career Coaches are available for support with résumé development/critique, mock interviews and
job search techniques. In addition, for clients that require more assistance with their job search and
career planning goals, a collaborative process between the individual and Career Coach will be provided,
with a focus on developing an action plan."

CCIS Career and Employment Services

"Most newcomers arrive in Alberta with high levels of education, experience, and expertise. However, many are unfamiliar with the local labour market and uncertain of how to secure employment in their professional fields. CCIS Employment Services provides its clients the necessary knowledge, support, and training so that they can initiate a job search process. Career counselors assess clients' experience and credentials and create customized action plans which include: goal setting, resume preparation, introduction to Canadian workplace culture, and job interview skills. The priority of counselors is to give newcomers the capability to find employment and begin a new career path here in Alberta."

Centre for Newcomers Employment Services

"If you are new to Canada, and trying to make a successful transition to employment in Calgary, the Centre for Newcomers can assist you with career and employment planning.

The Centre's professional career practitioners specialize in helping people with international training, education or work experience succeed in the Calgary labour market.

The Centre's training programs provide opportunities to develop your employability and communication
skills, while you train for a new occupation or further develop professional skill in your previous occupation."

Immigrant Access Fund

"An IAF loan can help if you are a newcomer and struggling to pay for the costs of the Canadian
accreditation or training you need so you can work in your pre-immigration career.

Loans are available to immigrants who do any type of work. People who receive IAF loans are both
skilled workers and professionals."
