Are you an Autistic or neurodivergent high school or post-secondary student who’s thinking about getting a summer job? 

You’re invited to join us for a special employment series designed just for you!

We know from experience that when a person has a better understanding of their strengths and interests it helps them feel more confident in taking steps to find a fulfilling job–so we’re here to help.

Get Ready for Your Summer Job! is a two-day workshop that will:

  • guide participants in discovering their strengths and interests,
  • provide an overview of various types of summer jobs,
  • explore seasonal opportunities in the Calgary area, and
  • share the necessary skills for successful employment, such as preparing a resume and cover letter, and honing interview skills.

This series takes place during Calgary Teachers’ Convention:

Thursday & Friday, February 15 & 16

1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

In-person @The Ability Hub (300, 3820 24 Ave NW)
