Thank you to everyone who responded to our online survey and participated in our focus groups this week for our research project Competency of Career Development Practitioners for Virtual Services. We are heading into our last week of focus groups, and we need your help.
Some of the upcoming focus groups need more participants. We are looking for participants who have served the following groups virtually during the pandemic and have not already participated in more than one focus group.
To make it easier for people to participate, we have set up a registration system and are actively recruiting for the following:
03-Aug 10:00 All Job Seekers Group #2 (for generalist practitioners)
03-Aug 13:00 Indigenous Populations
04-Aug 10:00 Women & Those Fleeing Violence
04-Aug 13:00 Persons with Disabilities
05-Aug 10:00 Racialized Populations
05-Aug 13:00 Those Without Essential Skills or Post-Secondary Education
06-Aug 10:00 Older Workers
06-Aug 13:00 Mental Health &/or Addictions
09-Aug 10:00 Did Not Use Virtual Services
Each session will take 60-90 minutes, and we ask that you not participate in more than two sessions so that we hear about a wide range of experiences. This research project is an opportunity for our employment services community to provide valuable contributions to the sector, both in BC and Canada.
