Community Living Algoma is hoping they can change the stigma about the lack of jobs around Sault Ste. Marie and communities throughout the Algoma district. It seems that new graduates, or people looking for a career change, seem to think they will have to leave the area to find work. The CLA says this isn’t true.
The CLA is looking to grow by actively recruiting people who are looking for a job in a profession they can be both passionate about and proud of.
CLA is hosting a job fair Thursday, May 31 from 5-8 p.m. at Algoma’s Water Tower Inn West Courtyard at 360 Great Northern Road. This event is open to the public. Anyone interested in a career as a Community Living Support Professional are encouraged to attend with copies of resumes handy, as interviews may be conducted on the spot.
“It was exciting to meet and interview such a vast number of talented people that attended our last job fair who expressed their purpose to make a difference in someone’s life,” said Human Resources Manager Niccette Reed. “If you are also looking for a rewarding career, we look forward to meeting you on May 31st.”
CLA is looking for employees who match their values and who are also eager to positively impact the lives that the CLA supports. These people must embrace the importance of the inclusion of all people, enabling individuals to take their rightful place in society.
“Community Living Algoma has set a target of 60 new employees before the end of July 2018,” said Executive Director John Policicchio. “At our first job fair in March 2018, we had 38 people attend. It was a great first-ever job fair for Community Living Algoma.”
With this organizational growth, Community Living Algoma aims to make Sault Ste. Marie and the Algoma Distriict a leader in inclusion of all people within. They’re striving to promote awareness of ther vision, so that “citizens throughout Sault Ste. Marie and the Algoma District can help contribute to communities where all people belong.”
