Community Employment Services

Loyalist CES     

I was able to find this great summer job in Belleville while still in Ottawa – done online, within two weeks.

Community Employment Services helped me find my first job and I continue to rely on their services for summer employment while attending the University of Ottawa. They showed me how to craft my initial unique and professional résumé and continue to help me modify it to reflect my growth in experience and skills.
