Need Work Experience?

As a job seeker, you can participate in work experience activities anytime – with the assistance of Working Skills Centre (WSC).

Work experience improves your chances of getting a job.  It provides you opportunities to develop practical job skills, increase your network of contacts, further your knowledge of Canadian workplace, get work references and acquire confidence. We can provide you with a range of work experience options through:

Job Placement Program

WSC`s Graduate Services Team members are always at work developing relationships with potential employers and other employment agencies to further your chances of finding a job. Through our six week job placement program, we match our Diploma graduates with employers in the Greater Toronto Area to fill a job vacancy.  This experience is a good opportunity for you to apply your newly-acquired skills and develop new ones,  demonstrate your abilities to potential employers, meet new work contacts and stay connected to the workforce, as well as obtain references.

We offer a wide range of services to help prepare and link our graduates with suitable employment experience opportunities, such as:

  • Assessing employability skills to determine a match with available jobs
  • Improving and focusing  job search skills
  • Access to FreshTransition, a job search tracking software
  • Understanding the importance of job maintenance skills
  • Creating full time work opportunities from job trials

Along the way, we provide you with updated information on the many avenues and resources available to help you make informed decisions about your career path.
