Cocktails and Career Conversations Open House on September 28th

We’re inviting you to the YES Centre for an evening of fun, food, beverages, and conversation!
Come to 666 rue Sherbrooke St. W, Suite 700, between 3 PM-6 PM and meet the team, view our computer lab and our library, as well as all the other resources available to you! Or simply stop by to say hi (we miss seeing you in person), grab a slice of pizza and have a glass of wine, all on us. We’ll be holding a raffle and free 15-minute career coaching sessions, so you don’t want to miss out! And bring a friend (or two!) who may be looking to upgrade their job search skills or simply need help in planning their next steps.
