Established in 1995, AXIS Career Services, the employment division of the Association for New Canadians is about working collaboratively to connect industry, professional associations, and community in Newfoundland and Labrador with internationally trained workers.
AXIS Career Services aims to empower internationally trained workers with the skills, knowledge, and information necessary to become independent, contributing members of the community and successfully integrate into the Newfoundland and Labrador workforce.
We value and respect the individuality of each participant, employer, service partner, and community. We work towards providing newcomers with excellent service that is tailored to their needs, and are committed to improving our services by responding to feedback and embracing emerging trends.
Since 1996, AXIS has introduced a wide range of programs and initiatives to assist internationally trained workers to successfully integrate into the Newfoundland and Labrador workforce by providing them with a better understanding of Canadian occupational culture, as well as opportunities to secure meaningful employment.
In addition to providing the relevant information about AXIS programs and services, AXIS Career Services has developed an innovative website for immigrants seeking employment in Newfoundland and Labrador. www.AXIScareers.net is a unique recruitment tool. It serves as a Skills-Matching Database for newcomers looking for work, as well as for local employers looking to match job vacancies with the skills, qualifications and experience of internationally trained workers living in the province.
This user-friendly database allows the job seeker to maintain his/her profile and resume, search and apply for job openings, browse posted job ads, as well as current labour market information.
Employers are able to post job openings, browse resumes, find answers to immigration questions, and access labour market information and services available through AXIS Career Services Division.
The AXIS Careers Services website has also opened up new possibilities for development and introduction of e-learning to our local immigrant population. It is currently supporting an e-Employment / Career Counselling program. With the increasing number of immigrants in the province, AXIS strives to bring more of its programs online to be able to better serve and reach out to the newcomers throughout Newfoundland and Labrador.
