Personal Success Planning

You’ve got an idea of where you want to work or what you want to do; or perhaps you don’t know what job would best suit your abilities. NEST can work with you to start creating a personal success plan that will guide you to your employment and personal success goals.

This success plan will help you identify the training and abilities you need, the lifestyle you require and what you need to do to achieve your goals.

Starting with what job interests you or what job suits your abilities, NEST will work with you from your goal to the training, experience and skills that you will require. Committing to your success plan will help you achieve your goals.

Call us to start preparing your personal success plan.

Resume Writing

Presenting your skills, talking about your abilities can be difficult, especially when we’re raised by our families to be respectful and humble.

You’ve got the training, experience, you know you’re the right person for an advertised opportunity, and your resume is a key factor in getting hired. Experience tells us that there isn’t one resume format that fits all.

If you would like assistance call NEST to book an appointment.

Mentorship

Getting a great job is just the beginning of your personal success plan. Now it is important that you: learn about how the shop, the construction site, the company or organization works; learn how you are expected to perform, what tasks that are specific or unique to the workplace; get to know your co-workers; learn the internal processes such as how to complete administrative forms, weekly, monthly or annual reporting requirements; or just simply where are all the tools kept in the shop.

Having a job mentor to guide you to ensure you succeed in your new workplace.
