Employment Service has a team of professionals who understand the unique challenges of military life.

If you are the partner of a Military member, we can:

  • tell you about the local labour market
  • help you tailor your resume and cover letter to make it attractive to local markets
  • offer information about programs, services and training that are available to you

If your profession requires a unique license (e.g. hairdresser, teacher, nurse, etc.) we can tell you more about the requirements in our area, and how you can apply. For more information, call us at either location.

To learn more about how we support the job search efforts of Military families, MESSAGE US or call our offices at (613) 687-1717 (Petawawa) or (613) 584-1717 (Deep River).

In addition to these local programs, Military Family Services  (MFS) offers a number of programs for Military Spouses at a National level. These include on-line training for job seekers and support for entrepreneurs building their own businesses.

The Military Spousal Employment Network, is a suite of employment programs to help partners of CAF members access employers and opportunities across the country. This includes an on-line job board and virtual career fairs.

If you are a past or present military member, we can help you with your transition to a civilian career. Drop-in or make an appointment with one of our career coaches to find out more about:

  • writing a resume that effectively conveys your military experience and value to potential civilian employers
  • developing effective job search skills
  • refining interview techniques

Your military career has given you marketable skills that employers are looking for, and we can help you build a resume that aligns with the civilian workplace.
