In case you were wondering…
These are just some of the most common questions we get asked. For anything else, please fill out the form to the left, or give us a call – we would be delighted to help.
Is Women@Work only offered in Coquitlam and Vancouver?
Do I need to have work experience in the tourism industry to join Women@Work?
Experience is great, but not necessary. Our Work Coaches will meet with you one-on-one and make sure you are the right fit for the program based on your interests and career goals.
Do I have to attend the entire 6 weeks of training?
Yes, when you join Women@Work, then we expect you to participate in the entire 6 weeks of training. For the days you don’t attend, you won’t get paid.
How will I know if I qualify for transportation and daycare supports?
When you meet with one of our Work Coaches, we will ask you some questions to determine eligibility for supports.
What can I expect from my paid work experience?
Our Work Experience Coordinator will match you with an employer in the tourism industry based on your skills and interests. The work experience is 3 months and you will be paid directly by the employer. Just like a real job!
What is a women only learning environment?
This means that we designed the program specifically with women in mind. Also, all the participants will be women and the program staff are women.
