Continuing Education + Job Training // Publishing since 1999

As a result of COVID, a lot of people have lost their employment. Depending on how long you have been out of the labour market, you may be wondering how to handle the employment gaps in your resume. This gap triggers some concern for those individuals because the common social narrative implies that the gap is a negative reflection of their professionalism.

For the past 10 years, I have worked with a career centre called Achēv. Our office is located at 595 Parliament Street and it is still there even though since March of 2020 all staff have been working remotely from home. Despite this, Achēv has found a way to keep everyone very connected by using Zoom, MS Teams and emails. I never feel alone and a day never passes that I do not have a conversation with one of my colleagues.

When I was in Grade 2, I discovered what a “shortcut” was. Instead of walking to school along the side of the road, my brother showed me a path through a farmer’s field that could save me five minutes of time.

If you are job searching this year it is a new era. It is a time of online applications and interviews via Zoom, however all job seekers still require a resume. This has not been deleted yet.
