What is English for Employment: Job Search (EEJS)?
Are you a beginner English language learner (CLB 3-4)? Are you looking for a job? You can access helpful resources through the English for Employment: Job Search program. This program was previously called Adult ESL Classroom Online (AECO). The name has been changed to better describe the course content for a newcomer audience.
EEJS is offered online, free of charge, and helps you improve your English AND your job search skills at the same time. This course includes topics such as:
- Interview preparation
- Resume writing
- Filling out applications
- How to access job markets
- And more!
EEJS is intended as a practice resource and does not have a completion certificate or instructor available for one-on-one assistance at this time. If you have any questions about this, please contact us.
EEJS is delivered through the CIES|Learn online education system, which can be accessed here.
Note for Teachers and Administrators
If you are an instructor or administrator with an immigrant-serving agency, or work with newcomers and want to access this course, you’re welcome to do so. EEJS is intended to be used as an open educational resource that can be shared, hosted, and upgraded for future projects. If you need assistance with transferring the course materials or want to work together on a hosting, contact us.
