Hiring the right people is critical to the success of any business. That’s where we come in – connecting employers to skilled and motivated candidates looking for work. COSTI’s professional staff take the time to understand each employer’s unique staffing needs, identify the best candidate to meet those needs, and monitor the placement on an ongoing basis to ensure satisfaction.
COSTI has been working with refugees to help them find work for over 20 years. We assist them in creating a resume; filling out job applications and employer forms, helping prepare for job interviews, explaining employer expectations; and telling them about available apprenticeship opportunities.
