As we know, many of our recent graduates have been leaving Nova Scotia in search of opportunities elsewhere. In this presentation, we will discuss the success of our pilot program LAUNCH, the importance of helping recent graduates in their job search and how there is a need for specialized programs. The LAUNCH program offers recent graduates the opportunity to learn about different aspects of their job search, including Skills Inventory, Self-Assessment, different materials, accessing the hidden job market, how to prepare for job interviews, and the important role networking plays in the modern job search, while continuously building their self-confidence.
Phillip Cantrill is the Lead Workshop Facilitator at Job Junction. He has currently created and facilitated the LAUNCH Program, a program to help Recent Graduates become Job Ready.
