Finding work can sometimes be a challenge. In the last 20 years, the world has gone to just being able to walk in and get a job to a complex array of HR, computer skills, complicated screening systems and other technical considerations that didn’t exist before.
If you’re 55 or older, looking for work can be even more challenging -- if you’ve worked somewhere for 20 years, you really see how things have changed since the last time you were job hunting. It can be a lot to take in.
So, taking all this into account, Parkland College is introducing the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers Program.
Not only does the course cover the way cover letters and resumes are now expected to be written in the current workplace, they’ll also get you up to speed on computer skills, as well as marketing yourself.
Granted, all that help is better if you have someone help you find a place to work -- so Parkland College has arranged work placements allowing you to apply those skills.
Information sessions for those interested in learning more about the program take place at the Yorkton Main Campus on March 19th and 20th at 10 am.
The program itself takes place from April 1 to June 14th from 9 am to 3:30 pm.
