Employers to learn how to prepare more effective job ads

Staffing expert Diana Lariviere to deliver workshop in French

Diana Lariviere lowresWELLINGTON – Sept. 8, 2015 – All employers who would like to learn how to prepare more efficient job ads and offers are invited to attend a two-hour workshop in French Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 12 noon to 2 p.m. at the Wellington Rural Action Centre. A lunch will be provided.

Diana Larivire, a staffing specialist with CAWLAR Consulting of Argyle Shore, will show participants how to avoid the barriers and pitfalls that some job ads may potentially create. They will learn how to prepare ads that are aimed more specifically at attracting the best possible candidates for the job.

Larivière notes it is important to know what to include and what to exclude from job offers. This then facilitates the assessment and the selection of the “right fit” candidate. She notes it is important to avoid “systemic barriers” and to take into consideration any cultural issues in the community.

Larivière has more than 30 years of experience in developing, critiquing and training recruitment practices and selection techniques. She has also provided training to hundreds of staffing specialists, managers and staff. As well, she is a chartered arbitrator who has determined the outcome of numerous complaints concerning hiring practices.

The Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI and the RAC are pleased to jointly offer this workshop. Last year, employees of both organizations attended a similar workshop given by Larivière. They appreciated both the content and her way of delivering it so they decided to invite her to come share her knowledge with the Island’s francophone employers.

The registration fee (which also covers the meal) is $5 for members and $10 for non-members. Advance registration is required. To register, no later than Friday, Sept. 25, send an email to raymond@rdeeipe.org or call 902-854-3439, Ext. 231.



CUTLINE: Diana Larivière will deliver a workshop on preparing effective job ads Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 2-4 p.m. at the Wellington Rural Action Center.
