Career Connections

Career Connections will be an invaluable resource for our students, graduates and alumni. We have partnered with Accenture, the City of Ottawa, Dress for Success and Invest Ottawa to offer our students, graduates and alumni customized employment and self-employment learning opportunities, information and resources.

This 8 week program will offer workshops on resume writing, interview skills, job readiness preparation, and an introduction to entrepreneurship.

Classes will be offered on site at OCISO and IWSO. There is no fee for participation.
