Joanne is a retired Health Care Aide and came to Job Zone d'emploi this summer since she was hoping to find a part-time job to keep busy. She expressed a strong interest in working as a Crossing Guard for the City of Cornwall, but she didn’t know where to start. She worked closely with her Employment Consultant and prepared a skills based resume geared to her objective. She was then coached on how to contact the employer to find out about the recruitment process. With the help of her Employment Consultant she created a polished resume and gained the confidence to reach out to the HR person who in turn provided her with valuable information on how and when to apply. Less than 2 months later, she has reached her goal and can be seen at various intersections within the community helping kids make their way to school!
Joanne could not be happier to be back in the workforce doing something that she deeply enjoys!
