How the Port Cares Employment Division can help You!

The Port Cares Division, also known as PC Works offers residents of all ages the opportunity to meet with a knowledgeable and experienced employment counsellor to assist with one on one career coaching.

We can help with resume writing, interview skills and all aspects of the job search. We also offer computer skills training, upgrading and works shops. Training such as Safety, WHMIS, Fork Lift, Smart Serve, First Aid and other training opportunities are offered onsite here at Port Cares.

We would like to share a good news story about Mr. Bell who worked with Julia Norris, one of our Employment Counsellors. We thank him for sharing his story with us.

“Overall, the whole office was helpful. In the computer room tracking down addresses and phone numbers, copying resumes and just plain helping folks out that aren’t really that good with computers. I would also like to mention that over the past number of years I’ve used the various different services available at the Port Cares office and always had good results.”
