Lunch-and-learn on WorkPEI services for employers slated for April 12

WELLINGTON – March 9, 2018 – All employers and people in charge of hiring staff are invited to attend a lunch-and-learn, Thursday, April 12, at 12 noon at the Wellington Rural Action Centre, to learn how WorkPEI could help them recruit the employees they need.

During her hour-long, bilingual information session, WorkPEI’s community engagement officer Amber James will explain how this web platform works and how it can help create connections between Island employers and job seekers.

She notes that employers who are registered on the site can consult its vast data base of resumes to find people who have the skill sets they require. Or, they can also post their job offers on a job board, which are then also shared automatically with WorkPEI’s 11,000 followers on Facebook.

James will show participants how to take full advantage of this free service. WorkPEI is an initiative of the PEI Department of Workforce and Advanced Learning.

This lunch-and-learn will be delivered in collaboration with the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI and the Wellington Rural Action Centre. The registration fee, which covers a light meal, will be $5 for Chamber members and $10 for non-members.

To register, contact Velma Robichaud by April 9 at or at 902-854-3439, Ext. 228.


CUTLINE: Amber James, community engagement officer with the province, will be the guest speaker at a lunch-and-learn on the recruitment of employees through the WorkPEI web platform April 12 at the Wellington Rural Action Centre.
