Jobseeker's Journey to Employment in Niagara (2009)

The authors of this document, a guide to seeking a job in a changing economy, begin by providing information on Essential Skills; defining skills; and explaining how skills can be transferred from one situation to another.

The heart of the document consists of eight profiles of jobseekers from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Two are Aboriginal persons; one is a woman returning to the workforce after 12 years as a stay-at-home mother; another is a newcomer to Canada. Other profiles feature people who are either under- or over-qualified for jobs; are dissatisfied with their current situations; or have been laid off from a long-time position.

Readers can think about the points raised in each profile, then continue on to a section of the document where they can write their own stories and work out their own plans for finding a job.
