Please check back here for possible changes prior to coming to Knox for workshops. Please enter at the main doors of 406 Edmonton Street. You will need to buzz the Knox Employment Entry Program (KEE Program) to be let in. When you enter, go through the doors on the left and let reception know you have arrived. Please arrive a few minutes early. If you arrive late, you will not be let in as it disrupts the flow of workshops. Please complete all Step By Step online modules prior to attending workshops. Please read above "bold" paragraph regarding health and mask requirements.
Reminder for in person workshops - have your elevator pitches ready! This can be found in the guidebook on Page 12 and in the Tips section at the bottom of the Job Leads page on this website. You are welcome to write them down to prepare. Make them specific to a job you applied at this week or plan to apply at in the next day or two. Remember to bring your KEE Guidebook and a pen with you.
The August 2nd workshop is anticipated to be "virtually" via Zoom (check back here for link below and in case they have been switched to in-person or for other changes). In order to have on camera Zoom speaking experience, each client will be asked to turn on their camera and briefly to introduce themselves and let us know one of their best work traits (clients can have this written down in advance if they like). For example: "Hi my name is Dave. I have an interest in learning new things (now back up that statement), wherever I get hired, I like to know the history of the company and have product knowledge on everything they sell so I can help customers no matter what department I may be working in."
Workshops are for registered clients Tuesdays at 11am, check back here for link if it is a scheduled Zoom Workshop (these are posted by 10:55am on Tuesdays at the bottom of this update section on this page). You may have to refresh your screen for the updated page or restart your browser if it's after 10:55am on a Tuesday and you do not see the link. It's recommended that clients are hooked up via Wi-Fi in order to not use up their cell data.
The Knox Employment Entry Program is a non-profit program funded by the Government of Canada and the Manitoba Government.
We help Manitobans find entry level work and train them in work related and job attaining skills so they maintain employment and know how to find a job should they ever find themselves unemployed again.
After clients are interviewed and accepted into the program, they participate in our certified "Step By Step To Employment" training course which focuses on how they can bring value to the company they work for by looking at things through the perspective of the employer's and customers' point of view. We cover the "big picture" when it comes to attaining the job including all steps of finding and securing employment to how to be a great employee and how to provide excellent customer service.
Our goal is to see clients employed for the long run!
