From Job Loss to Job Found! How to Help Adults and Youth Who Have Been Laid Off Survive Job Loss and Get Employed in Less Time Than Ever!

This is a Webinar! 

A research study cited by the British Broadcasting Company showed that 89% of laid off workers experience health problems as the result of the layoff. Substance abuse, depression and other mental health problems and even suicide rates increase dramatically because of layoffs. Actually, the health problems start before the layoff as people feel the incredible stress, pressure and anxiety as they wait to hear if they are going to lose their jobs.

While losing a paycheck is very serious, it is far from the only thing people lose when they are let go from their jobs. They lose structure in their lives. They lose purpose. They lose respect and self-esteem. They lose the support and friendships that come from their workplace family. In many cases they lose their dream of a career and a better future. The loss often spills over into their families and can lead to the breakup of relationships and even divorce. People who go through job loss often experience the same devastating feelings that people experience with the death of a loved one. It is easy to underestimate the impact of being laid off unless you have experienced it.

Youth and adults that have lost their jobs can be very difficult to serve in our programs. They often bring anger and resentment from being laid off into the counseling relationship. They can be disoriented and not be able to make decisions or get the most out of our services. They frequently have unrealistic expectations about how long job search will take and what we can do to help them. Many workforce staff will say it is easier to work with people who have no or limited work histories than work with people who have lost their jobs. You can be successful with this population if you have the right program design and skill sets to address their challenges. If you want to get better results than ever with youth or adults dealing with job loss and help them go from pink slip to paycheck as quickly as possible, don’t miss this webinar!

Learn the four ways layoffs happen and how the type of layoff should change how you work with people to get the best results. Get a list of the most common job search mistakes that are made by people who are laid off so you can help the people you serve avoid these costly mistakes that will prolong their job search. The session includes new employment counseling, case management and program design strategies that can make your program a powerful springboard to reemployment success!

Discover from interviews with hundreds of youth and adults what they actually did in their job search that led to getting job offers in less time. Learn from employer feedback why they often don’t hire people who have been laid off because of the mistakes they make in interviews. If you are going to refer people to training, get new ideas for assessment and to improve retention in training and get better outcomes. For example, of people that started apprenticeships about 50% of them drop out before they complete their training! This webinar will make your training referrals stick like glue so they can finish training successfully. If you want to help youth and adults go from job loss to job found in record time, make sure you take this webinar!

Help us cultivate a community we all enjoy by reviewing and following the Code of Conduct.  

Our Purpose  

Thank you for being a part of the online CDPC social learning community. To ensure that all members have the best possible experience, we have a few ground rules that we ask everyone to adhere to. This code of conduct applies equally to every person in the community and is intended to foster an online space that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming to all. 

Community Rules 

Be welcoming 

We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. We aim to create and facilitate a community that promotes excellence and innovation in career and workforce development. Please extend respect to all members; we all come from different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and there is no such thing as a stupid question. 

Be respectful 

We won’t all agree all the time, but when we disagree don’t let those disagreements turn into personal attacks. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened will not be a productive one. Instead, when having discussions in the online community, create productive conversations around the content being presented, not the person behind the content. Any post that is determined to be “hate speech” towards any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation.  

Hate Speech could include and is not limited to:  

  • Violent threats or language directed against another person 
  • Discriminatory jokes, language, or materials 
  • Defamatory or abusive language or materials 
  • Profane or illegal materials 
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior 

A good rule of thumb is to never post anything that you wouldn’t be comfortable with the world seeing or that you wouldn’t want anyone knowing came from you. We ask that you keep in mind the focus of this community, which is building excellence and innovation in career and workforce development for all individuals.  

Be considerate of the purpose of the community 

This community will be focused on building excellence and discussing innovation in the career and workforce development field. The goal of this community is to communicate goals, challenges, constructive feedback, and questions in relation to career and workforce development. The community should be a place for continued learning and development as well as a place to discuss the future of our field (solicitation without written consent by the Project or Advisory team, is strictly prohibited). Any post that is determined to be soliciting any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation. 

Post your discussions or documents in the most appropriate group or topic 

Make reasonable efforts to ensure that posts and materials are allocated to the appropriate group or topic. This will prevent cluttering the community and make it easier for everyone to find the information that they are seeking. Individuals who do this repeatedly will be contacted by one of the group admins and asked to follow these guidelines.  

Privacy and Release of Information  

CDPC-CEDC will not release your information to any third-party agencies.  

Group Admins 

There are four group admins who are available to you. Below are their names and their spoken language. 

Heather Powell | Anglophone 

Gabrielle St-Cyr | Francophone/Anglophone 

Florence Desrochers | Francophone/Anglophone

Muriel Andoblé-Yao | Francophone

Thank you and welcome to the CDPC Community!
