Build your Career
While WPH doesn’t offer training programs or directly assist people in finding employment, we are an excellent source for connecting job seekers to local employment agencies, government agencies and career information. Our site is a gateway that connects you to a network of people and resources in your search for employment.
As a job seeker you may find that it’s difficult to get a handle on what sectors of Hamilton’s labour market are hiring, and what industries are on the rise or decline.
WPH research and publications provide up-to-date labour market information that can help you decide if you wish to retrain for another field, or continue on your current path.
For the past five years WPH has hosted the Face to Face Employment and Job Fair, which has lead to employment for thousands of people. A recent initiative of WPH is www.lostmyjob.ca, a peer-to-peer support website for laid off workers which features a directory of local services, as well as practical information on surviving job loss, and tips on job search.
Come and spend some time on our website and explore our research, upcoming events and find out about our partner organizations.
