The Employment Resource Centre (ERC) at North Island College (NIC) wants to know what local employers think.

How would employers like to work with the ERC?  What services do local employers require? What kind of community support is needed, and in what areas? How can the ERC help local employers?

These are the questions that Treena Nadon, NIC’s employment service advisor, is asking in a survey that was sent out by email  to all members of the Comox Valley and the Campbell River Chambers of Commerce.

“In essence, I’m hoping to find the best way to connect employers with our students,” said Nadon. “I’m looking for ways to strengthen opportunities for students while meeting the needs of the community.”

The ERC opened its doors in September of 2009 and is available to help all employers who are seeking knowledgeable and eager staff.

By assisting students in gaining meaningful employment, the ERC serves as a bridge for accessing quality positions posted by employers in our communities.

Employers may also access students from NIC’s co-operative education programs for targeted busy periods, special projects or to cover leave of absence.

“Now is a great time to further develop our resources for employers within the communities we serve,” Nadon said. “I welcome community involvement in making this service the best it can be.”

The survey began on Sept. 21 in Courtenay and Sept. 23 in Campbell River, and will end Oct. 21.

The purpose of the survey is to enhance the ERC’s ability to support employers, with a secondary goal to determine how many employers, (and from what industry), are interested in hiring NIC’s co-operative education students.

Anyone who did not receive the email but is interested in participating in the survey, can find visit  www.surveyfeedback.ca/surveys/wsb.dll/s/1g1275.

To find out more about NIC’s Employment Resource Centre, or to ask a question about the survey, please contact Treena Nadon at 250-334-5076, Monday through Wednesday in Courtenay, or 250-923-9739, Thursday and Friday in Campbell River.
