International opportunity with COADY INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE

This is an experience of a life time. Go Global with the Coady Institute's youth in Partnership. Coady is recruiting dynamic community-minded Canadians between 19 and 30 years of age to participate in its Youth in Partnership program. Pending funding, the program will begin in July 2005 and include a six-month work placement in Africa, Asia, or South America. Qualified candidates must currently be: unemployed or underemployed; recent graduates of (or about to graduate from) a university or community college; first-time participants in the Youth Employment Strategy (YES). Proficiency in French and a history of community involvement are considered assets. Please submit your application by March 11, 2005. For further information please contact:

Louise Hamelin, Youth Programs Coordinator

Export Edge Program

Are you still looking for a job?

- Think they would be interested in financial assistance to hire you?

Well show them what a go-getter you are and tell them about the ExportEdge program. A variety of placement types are eligible through the program - including IT, Engineering, Customer Service as well as Business Development/Marketing - so be sure to mention it!
