Accelerated Job Search Program
What if you could shorten your job search?
Are you interested in an accelerated job search (AJS) group that provides support while you look for a new job? As part of an AJS group, you will receive job-search skills training from experts, support from other people engaged in a job search, daily check-ins, and job lead sharing.
Oska joined an AJS group when he was looking for a stronger network to help him get a job after he graduated from his masters program. For him, having the support of a group helps keep him motivated to continue his job search. He’s even gotten some job leads and interviews from the friends he’s made in the group.
Come and explore Accelerated Job Search groups.
What to Expect
When you join an AJS group, you’ll participate in daily meetings. Currently, all groups meet online. Daily AJS meetings consist of:
- Skills refresher (polishing up important job-search skills)
- Participant sharing (setting goals and following up on how those goals are going)
- Sharing job leads (job seekers share ideas and networking opportunities with each other)
Outside of meetings, you will be following up on job leads and reaching out to networking contacts. The daily check-ins provide guidance and support from peers, but you will do much of the work needed for a job search between meetings.
AJS groups are facilitated by volunteer employment advisers and job search professionals.
