IEPs & The Labour Market

Every Monday from July 13, 2020 – December 21, 2020, 1PM – 2:30PM MST.

Do you help Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs) find employment in Alberta? If so, these free online drop-in sessions are for you!

These drop-in sessions will explore how job search counsellors can help IEPs tackle the labour market and identify their specializations and accomplishments.

In each of these sessions, participants will be presented with a case study and then split into groups. They will be asked to discuss and consider some questions, such as: What is the main obstacle this IEP is facing? What job search strategy would you recommend to this IEP? What changes would you recommend they make to their resume? The groups will then be asked to presented their findings and discuss ideas and strategies with the greater group.

This ongoing series will cover a wide range of professions, and each session will feature a different case study. While we recommend attending all sessions, it is not mandatory to do so. Participants may pick and choose which sessions they would like to register for.

A recording from last week’s session can be found here.

Important note:

The next session is on Monday, August 17th, 2020 at 1:00 PM MDT.
