“We continue to support clients at CDS offices across the Island during COVID-19 and have worked hard to accommodate their individual needs,” says Dean Getson, Career Development Practitioner and Site Manager at the O’Leary office.
“We provide information on funding streams for post-secondary studies, support clients as they seek employment, assist with subsidized wage programs, and support people as they go through the career exploration process. This is being accomplished through in-person meetings, phone appointments, e-mail correspondence, and coming soon, virtual conversations,” says Dean.
CDS public access resource centers remain closed for the time being as they continue to look at best practices to manage COVID-19.
“Every office has developed an operational plan that best suits the individual site. We continue to respect social distancing guidelines while offering hand sanitizing stations and disposable masks. We want every client to know that we are adhering to all safety precautions while trying our best to meet expectations.”
