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.
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.
