Your new life in Hamilton: A guide to immigrant employment success

 

group of newcomersImmigrants are vital to the continued and future economic growth of Hamilton.  With this in mind, Workforce Planning Hamilton created a guide to immigrant employment services and supports that provides immigrants with information on why Hamilton should be the city of choice for their new home.  The guide contains lists of employment and educational supports, self-employment services and key resources in the community.  It provides labour market information on future jobs in Hamilton, transferable skills, and advice from local employment counsellors.

Sponsorship needed for the first Hamilton Employment Crawl 
mcmaster logoWPH is pleased to partner with McMaster University on the first Hamilton Employment Crawl
(HEC). HEC is important because McMaster students are often not aware of the diverse and well-paying employment opportunities that are available in Hamilton. This event for McMaster students takes place on April 25 and 26.
 
Students will travel by buses to businesses within downtown Hamilton and discover why Hamilton should be their city of choice to live, work and play.  Students will register for the Crawl that best fits their career interests.  Choices are Crawls that focus on: Manufacturing & Technology, Health Care & Social Services, Creative Industries & Communications, and Government & Finance.
Where do you come in?  Sponsorship is needed for HEC.  This is a chance to showcase your organization as one that values education, community and is proud to be located in Hamilton. Become a sponsor and be part of a high profile event that is sure to create a buzz all over the city!
 
Our next newsletter will be delivered to your inbox on April 18, 2012.  For more information about WPH please call 905.521.5777 or email: info@workforceplanninghamilton.ca.
