Looking to ReStart your career?
ReStart’s Employment Services are free for job seekers of all ages — including seniors and mature workers!
We know that everyone has different goals when it comes to finding work. Maybe you are:
- retired and looking for extra income
- getting back on their feet after an unexpected layoff
- interested in re-entering the workforce
- just looking for a change in career!
Whatever YOUR reason is, we’re here to help. And here’s how…
We know you’re not just another job seeker
As people age, they often face unique challenges when it comes to finding employment, such as needing help with in-demand skills or age discrimination. But they also bring with them a lifetime of knowledge and expertise that can make them exceptional candidates. ReStart offers services specifically designed to help seniors and retirees overcome obstacles and achieve their employment goals.
One of the key ways that ReStart helps seniors and retirees is by offering job training and skill-building programs. These programs can help seniors and retirees update their skills and knowledge so that they are competitive in today’s job market.
We also offer support with digital literacy, so you can get the skills you need to safely (and successfully) use technology in your job search and at work. Our Resource & Information centre is also available to you if you need access to computers, printers, and more!
We also take time to understand your unique needs, and can go to bat for you with employers when it comes to schedules, accommodations, and whatever you need to be the best you can be at your job.
Not sure where to start? Start with ReStart!
Another way that ReStart helps seniors and retirees is by providing employment counselling services. This can be particularly helpful for seniors and retirees who are unsure of where to start in their job search.
We have a team of experienced job placement specialists who can match you with job opportunities that align with your interests, skills, and experience (and of course, your goals)!
We’re there, from (re)start to finish!
In addition to job training and placement services, ReStart also offers support and guidance throughout the entire job search process.
This can include assistance with everything from deciding what you want out of your career, to making sure your first 90 days at your new job are a success!
We can also provide support and advice on issues such as age discrimination. Plus, we vet our partner employers to ensure your applications are handled fairly and without bias!
All of our services are offered completely free of charge. Some of our most popular services include help with:
- Finding job opportunities
- Writing resumes and cover letters
- Filling out job applications
- Negotiating with employers
We can help with just about everything you need to find work you enjoy! So…
