The CIES Welcome Centre played host to the Employment Skills Program Job Fair on Friday, March 16, with approximately 200 clients stopping by to meet potential employers from 27 unique organizations. The event was a resounding success, with many new relationships forged and resumes exchanged.
CIES also hosted an Employers’ Brunch and Awards Ceremony earlier in the day, with representatives from dozens of local companies gathering to toast the future and recognizing one another’s contributions. Recipients of the Extra Miles Award included Sarah Hernandez-Silva of engineering firm Worley Parsons, who for the last 5 years has volunteered her time and experience to conduct invaluable mock employment interviews for clients in our Employment Skills Programs. CIES also recognized Paulo Camargo of the Project Management Institute, who brings his extensive skill and insight to our school to conduct Project Management workshops for our clients. Thank you sincerely to everyone who joined us for both of these events – our clients and community partners mean the world to us! Together, we are building the future.
