Job Search Zombies Workshop a Success!
Over 50 front line employment services workers attended the Job Search Zombies: Motivating the Unmotived Jobseeker workshop presented by Dan Walmsely of the Keys Job Centre on October 24th. The professional development opportunity was presented jointly by the Employment Assistance Resource Network (EARN) and by the Youth Employment Network (YEN).
Those in attendance enjoyed Dan's dynamic and fun presentation which gave practical tips on motivating both their clients, and themselves, to seek the positives in life, rather than the negatives.
Best practices were shared on how to increase clients' self confidence/efficacy; positive thinking; focus/strong goals and how to create a motivating environment.
After the three hour workshop YEN's 20th Anniversary was celebrated in style with a huge cake provided by the students of St. Charles Chef Training Program.
Special thanks to Marilyn Presutti and the staff of the Nicholas Mancini Centre, and to the members of EARN who helped to organize the event, pictured above with Dan Walmsely.
