Resources in Quebec
Emploi-Quebec provides comprehensive tools and programs for job hunters as well as great downloads for reference. If you're looking for work and could use a little help to boost your chances of success, the Employment Assistance Services measure can provide opportunities to:
- attend information sessions on the labour market
- get career advice and counselling
- take part in job-search activities and job-placement assistance activities
An employment assistance officer will help you review your career goals and choose the activities and services most appropriate for you. Activities can be provided by a local employment centre (CLE) or by Emploi-Québec partners. They are generally short-term, lasting under 180 hours. Here are some examples.
Job-search clubs. These support groups help you carry out your job search and find the tools and resources you need. When you join a club, your search for employment becomes your full-time job, complete with a workplace-like setting.
Job-hunting strategies. You get support and advice to help you get started on your job search, as well as assistance with organizing your search.
