Why Are 159 Job Seekers So Happy?


Sault College Employment Solutions helps job seekers aged 15 and up find work in and around Sault Ste. Marie, Blind River and the North Shore. The Sault Ste. Marie office held a winter campaign, 99 Jobs, which recently came to an end on March 18. 99 Jobs showcased free employment services and assisted those in the community seeking employment.

The campaign goal was to help 99 job seekers find employment in 99 days. Employment Solutions is proud to announce that they surpassed the goal for 99 Jobs! Over the 99-day winter campaign, they assisted 159 job seekers with finding employment in the Sault Ste. Marie area.

When the 99 Jobs campaign began on December 10, 2018, Employment Solutions had 99 active jobs posted from employers throughout the community. “Our staff remained focused and dedicated to reaching the goal of this campaign. Staff worked extremely hard to provide the necessary services and supports to community members and employers alike to ensure the goals were not only reached, but surpassed. We continue to fulfill our mandate through campaign such as 99 Jobs and we look forward to continuing this important work,” said Maggie Catterick, Director, Employment Solutions.

Even though the winter campaign is over, free one-on-one job search support is available year round. Those interested in free job search support, including resume and cover letter assistance, connections to employers, interview skills, work placements and more, can drop in to meet with an Employment Consultant.
