A reminder that WERC is still “open for business” as we work remotely to keep our staff and clients safe and healthy. Initially we were looking forward to opening our doors on April 6, 2020 however this now looks more like May 4, 2020 – stay tuned for updates. Currently, we are using remote technology and are still available to support your employment and job search needs. We are still doing client intakes over the phone, resumes, cover letters and job search online, helping to prepare for interviews and providing support for employment barriers. Our Facebook page will have some of the job search information and topics you asked us for during our contest. Our staff are keeping to regular business hours of Monday to Thursday 9 – 4:30 and Friday 9 – 4. If you are an employer and are still hiring – please give our Job Developer Karen Nilsson an email and she will get back to you to answer your questions and provide support.
In the meantime, we can be reached at 519-421-2077 (please leave a name and number and we will return your call as fast as possible – even better – give us an idea of what you might need and we can direct you to the right Employment Counsellor!). We can also be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep checking in on our Facebook under Women’s Employment Resource Centre or on our website at werc.ca
During this time, the Small Business Centre is posting some excellent and informative materials on government funding updates. We encourage you to “Like” their Facebook page for the most updated information.
To any of our essential workers, truck drivers, cleaners, janitors and front line healthcare workers – we thank you.
Walk, talk, breathe and treasure this time with family. Our community is strong and our village is resilient!
Take care and be safe and healthy!
Your WERC Team
