The LEHC Stairclimb for United Way Elgin-Middlesex

The London Employment Help Centre will be participating in the Scotiabank Stairclimb again this year. Things have been very different in 2020 and this year’s Stairclimb is no different. Though we can’t climb the stairs at One London Place, we can walk the equivalent distance! Not only that, some of our team at the LEHC have committed to a 5k hike.

United Way Elgin-Middlesex and Scotiabank bring you this great event to continue to support the communities it serves here! Donate if you can! $1, $10, $100! Help us exceed our goal of $500 again this year!!

You can donate here, or by clicking the image below.

How Do You Stand Out?

The job market is competitive. Companies and decision makers can only know as much about you as you allow. It’s important to take control of your professional image and explore ways to stand apart from all the other applicants. The London Employment Help Centre can help! Reach us today to get started or continue on your career journey.

Perseverance Pays

The job search is tough. We’ve all been there. It can cause self-doubt, fear and stress, and a loss of identity. That’s normal. It can also empower you. Take one LEHC client, Joe, who was unsure about using computers to submit online job applications. This knowledge gap made it very difficult for Joe to get in front of anyone. He has the skills, knowledge and experience but without knowing how to apply online, he found himself limited greatly in his job search.

Now, after working very closely with one of our Career and Employment Specialists, he is able to access and edit his application documents and submit online applications anywhere he likes.

Our team of professionals can support you–not just with technology use, but with the finer details of an active job search approach and strategy.

The Changing World of Work

The world has changed drastically. The world of work is no different. Remote jobs will grow even as many people right now are being laid off. The jobs that are disappearing now will slowly reappear in new forms. As job seekers and employers, it’s important to adapt with the times. It seems like virtual meetings aren’t going anywhere soon. Are you a job seeker who’s uncomfortable with the virtual interview process? As a hiring manager, are you concerned that you cannot as easily get to know your applicants?

This is just one aspect of our changing world. While there is a lot of uncertainty, there is also a lot of potential. To the talent out there, companies are hiring! To the companies, there are many people looking for work. Workforce development has never been so important. Contact the LEHC today to see how our team of professionals can help!
