Employment Services, Resource Centres & Job Boards

Newcomers can start searching for a job before they arrive in Kingston. Many employers advertise their current employment opportunities on job websites. Job postings generally include the duties of the position, salary range, education and employment qualifications, and information about how to apply. Job applications can often be made online. Many websites that advertise employment opportunities require users to register before they can search the database. See For More Information links below for various job board listings.

After you've arrived, newcomers can get help finding work from employment resource centres. While there are several in Kingston (see the For More Information links below and the Community Directory links on the right-hand side of the page), the following two provide service in both English in French (and often other languages) and can also provide assistance in obtaining settlement services from local settlement agencies.

  • KEYS Employment Services has a large resource centre where job seekers can use telephones, fax machines and computers at no charge. KEYS staff are available to help with writing resumes and cover letters and to teach newcomers job-search and interview skills. Information about the labour market, financial assistance, credential assessment and employment opportunities is also available through KEYS, as are a variety of newcomer-focused programs such as their Professional Mentoring Partnership program and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.
  • ACFOMI Employment Services provides assistance in both English and French to job seekers who want to enter the job market and possibly change careers. ACFOMI has information on the local job market and employment agencies, and provides direct employment assistance, including writing resumes, drafting cover letters, practice interviews and career counselling. Computers with Internet access and other office equipment are available for use.

The Kingston Frontenac Public Library has computers in each branch that can be used by the public at no charge.
