The Employment Services Center (CSEPR) revealed today its new series of fall workshops for the population of Prescott-Russell and surrounding areas. This series includes eight workshops on various topics that will be given in French, in English or even bilingually, from September to November. All themes aim at better informing and preparing participants in regards to different aspects of employment, from the job interview, to apprenticeship, to personal development.

“This new series of workshops, like previous ones, aims at helping both job seekers and workers continue to move forward on their career path,” said André Roy, Executive Director for the CSEPR.

“Our team continually strives to find current and interesting subjects, but also some that are diversified in order to meet with a wider range of client needs. Also, we believe we have managed to once again orchestrate a great series of activities to offer our community. We certainly hope that people will respond positively to this initiative, since the workshops’ aim is to better equip them in their current and future jobs,” concluded Roy.
