Career Connections Nova Scotia Works staff provide a warm and friendly environment for clients who are seeking assistance with their job search and career development. Dedicated to being of service to individuals and our community at large, our knowledgeable team is responsible for making a difference in the lives of each and every client through the delivery of innovative programs and outstanding services. We have a commitment to excellence, cultural diversity, equity, inclusion practices and mutual respect.
A community-based society, Career Connections Society (incorporated in 1997), oversees our development and administration, working with user groups to maximize available resources. Prior to the creation of Career Connections Nova Scotia Works in 2016, each of the locations in Pictou, Antigonish and Guysborough County offered employment services separately. Most of the current Career Connections Nova Scotia Works staff belonged to one of the following career centres: Career Connections in New Glasgow, Antigonish Career Resource Centre in Antigonish, Career and Job Counselling Centre in Guysborough and the Antigonish Guysborough Black Development Association. We have almost 20 years of experience!
We belong to the Nova Scotia Career Development Association (NSCDA) and most of our staff members have earned the designation of Certified Career Development Practitioner (CCDP). We receive annual career development and training opportunities on the following topics: Case Management, Diversity and Inclusion, Engaging Employers, Problem Solving, Mental Health Strategies, Change Management, Problem Solving, Leadership Development, Facilitation Skills and more.
We are fully funded by the Department of Labour and Advanced Education under the direction of Employment Nova Scotia.
