The Get Ready Program works primarily with Aboriginal, Inuit and Métis people, including disadvantaged and at risk groups, looking to work in the oil and gas, and construction industries. If you are like most Aboriginal, Inuit and Métis people, you have too few career opportunities within your community. We also know from first hand experience that a training program without career placement, coaching and mentoring isn’t enough for sustainable career growth.
The Get Ready Program helps your people overcome initial and ongoing barriers to employment and ensures long and successful careers.
|1.||Job readiness certification – This is a recognized certification that hiring companies want to see on a resume.|
|2.||Employment placement support – We assist with creating the right resume, then make sure it gets to the human resource people who will understand the value that successful completion of the Get Ready Program brings to their company.|
|3.||Employment coaching – Ongoing support after entering the workforce or starting a new career.|
|4.||Career mentoring – We make sure there is a built-in support system that stays with each person on the job site. It will help them navigate any daily workplace and personal challenges that might come up while being away from home, or in a new environment. That support is based on the real experience of empathetic people that have gone before you.|
We are a 100% Aboriginal owned company that is committed to helping Aboriginal,
Inuit and Métis people thrive and prosper in the workplace and in their communities.
Our mission is to deliver the best value to Aboriginal, Inuit and Métis people
through pre-employment training, career placement, coaching
and mentoring to ensure your people have lifetime careers.
