Youths and employers looking for summer students should note that Service Canada Centre for Youth opened an office on the North Shore this week.
Service Canada Centres for Youth assist young people with resumes, cover letters and interview skills, as well as provide information on federal government programs and services, wage rates and employment standards. For employers, SCCYs offer job posting services on the Internet and in the office, providing access to hundreds of students.
“Whatever the job — big or small, short- or long-term — we can help you fill it,” Nicole Caulfield, supervisor of the SCCY, said in a release.
“In the coming weeks, Youth Services Officers will be contacting local employers to make them aware that our SCCY is now open and ready to assist them in any way possible.”
The North Shore SCCY opened Tuesday, May 29 at 104A-267 West Esplanade. Hours of operation are Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Employers interested in using SCCY services and students looking for summer employment can contact the North Shore SCCY at 604-666-9198.
