Join the waitlist for our practical Job Preparation Workshops

The first round of Fortem’s Job Preparation Workshops for first responders transitioning out of service was so successful that we’re coming back with more.

Fortem Transition Engagement Officer Anthony Ferro says the workshops form part of the overall Transition & Employment Program. “We support first responders who are leaving service as they transition to the next chapter of their lives. We have a strong focus on employment in our Transition & Employment Program, and we also support a holistic approach: based on the first responder’s unique circumstances, other pathways and services may be the best option for individuals.”

The workshop series provides a set of practical ideas to help you make the transition to your next role. “Part of our work is to facilitate these Job Preparation Workshops, in order to give you some great tips, tools and support in preparing your next job application,” Anthony adds.
