#LEPCRealityCheck twitter chat aims to end myths surrounding the world of work. Certain myths about the world of work can stand in the way of job seekers connecting with rewarding careers. Accurate facts will be shared through Twitter (@LEPC_EMO) using the hashtag #LEPCRealityCheck, allowing job seekers to get the latest information about work. Even employers who take part could learn something new about job seekers they’ve never considered before. Check out the three myths that have already been uploaded to the Local Employment Planning Council website: www.localemploymentplanning.ca/reality-check. At the end of each month until June 2018, a community-wide twitter chat will be held with the hashtag #LEPCRealityCheck.

A second chance at a career in demand
Have you ever wanted a change? Erika Turai, sure did when she moved to London. She was working a dead-end job for years, but wanted to find a career that would really take her somewhere. She started to do her research and with the help of WIL Employment Connections, was able to retrain at the Ontario Truck Driving School (with financial support) through the Second Career Program. “Without Second Career there would be no way I could have afforded the cost of retraining. I’m so grateful for the support I received and the best part is, I now have a job that lets me be my own boss and gives me the freedom to make my own schedule,” said Turai.
