*What Calgarians are saying about Laid Off Calgary…

  • Peter

    “As a job seeker I look for peer support and the opportunity to discuss / network / jobs and careers. The support received in the meetings has helped me through the low periods and have been morale boosting. It has also made me aware that I am not alone and that there is a whole community of talented, intelligent and caring laid off people in Calgary.

    The group has connected me with 3rd party agency support (Career Connection for example) and as a result gained confidence with my resume, LinkedIn profile and networking opportunities. There has also been connection with recruitment agencies and Motivational speakers."

  • L.S

    “Laid Off Calgary really offers an easy, comfortable, frontline option for those of us needing some support through a life changing experience, but who do not require or are not ready to access more formal community support agencies. It is unique because it is a casual atmosphere and offers a great sense of camaraderie and connectedness with people of all age groups, cultural backgrounds, work experience and duration of layoff"

  • Warren

    "I appreciate the support and being able to support others in the same situation. It is super important to have community and talk with others in the same boat."

  • Steve

    "I have never attended a support group before but this proved to be valuable for me."

  • Lisa

    "Peer support, encouragement/inspiration, tangible takewaway suggestions for job hunting"
