Searching for employment is an exciting yet challenging task, whether you are looking for your first job or changing your career. An employment resource center is a largely untapped resource to help job seekers find positions while developing essential skills to land their dream position. Directions For Wellness Inc. (DFW) is Central Alberta’s cost-effective employment resource service alternative to large corporate institutions that provides employment access, training, skills development, and valuable career guidance.
What is an Employment Resource Center?
An employment resource center (ERC) is a service provided by various types of organizations, from schools and universities to corporate and independent institutions. The services offered help those seeking employment by facilitating the development or improvement of professional skills and connecting people with valuable job opportunities. Employment support services advise people on many aspects of professional skills, from building resumes and cover letters to interview preparation and job search planning to job maintenance.
Benefits of an Employment Resource Center
Job searches are not easy, but whether you are just entering the workforce or rejoining it, an ERC provides you with valuable resources to make the process less overwhelming. The services provided by these centers are your centralized source for information about employment opportunities, training programs, connections with potential employers, and support to secure and retain employment. The following are the comprehensive benefits of utilizing our employment services at DFW.
Expand Your Opportunities
Many online resources exist to search for employment opportunities, but using them can be frustrating and overwhelming. Additionally, the information provided does not give you key insights into organizations, just general information on job descriptions, salaries, and expectations. The close relationship between employers and an ERC enables them to provide additional insights about an organization and employers to help you find a rewarding long-term career that improves your quality of life. Sharing your goals and preferred positions allows services to present you with opportunities that align with your needs and even identify those you may not be aware of.
Hone Essential Skills
Expert career development services work to help you hone important professional skills to stand out and appeal more to potential employers. Whether you want to improve your resume and cover letter, prepare for interviews, or hone industry-specific skills, the experts at an employment help center work with you to develop these skills and make you an ideal hire. Resumes and cover letters are vital aspects of applying for jobs. An ERC helps you craft a professional resume and powerful cover letter with expert guidance to help you land the job you deserve. These experts also help enhance your interview skills through mock interviews to identify your strengths and areas for improvement and inform you how to make necessary changes to excel in your interviews.
Experience Personalized Attention
At DFWI, we strive to provide those seeking our employment assistance services with personalized attention to maximize the benefits of these services. We know that everyone’s situation and skills are unique, influencing the time needed to hone professional skills and find employment.

Networking is an essential function of any career, but the best skills and strategies for effective networking don’t always come naturally. The networking opportunities and development provided by an ERC are the most significant benefits of working with a center. Our working relationships with local employers don’t just give us exclusive insights into available positions; they also allow us to connect you with potential employers giving you an essential advantage in your job search. DFW offers everything you need to make professional connections with your dream job, from developing networking skills to hosting networking events.
