The Town of Ajax recently launched and delivered an innovative program to help youth gain real-world experience by connecting them with local employers who required business services during the PanGames.
Youth had the opportunity to network, learn skills, connect with employers, hear from community leaders and gain references for their job search.
The Durham Region Unemployed Help Centre’s Employment Counsellor, Tania Gonsalves and Marketing / Outreach Specialist, Elsii Faria, participated by interviewing youth and providing résumé and cover letter support.
Youth had the rare opportunity to hear Search Engine People‘s CEO, Jeff Quipp, present on optimizing and using your LinkedIn Profile for job search success.
Youth were able to gain a better understanding of what a successful CEO looks for in an employee and how you can get noticed by demonstrating your knowledge, interest and commitment through LinkedIn.
