With the credit crunch threatening a downturn in the job market, the Employment Resource Centre is appealing to former clients who have made it in business to reconnect with the organisation. The ERC, which has helped over 7,000 unemployed Jews back into the job market, has set up an Alumni Network with the goal of finding volunteer mentors and networking assistance. ERC chairman Trisha Ward hoped that those it had helped to success would want “to give something back. In the current unstable economic climate, the role of the ERC is even more vital. “It is crucial that we continue to provide support so our clients return to work as quickly as possible.” The resource centre aids those who have lost their jobs, recent graduates, people contemplating a career change or returning to work after raising a family or divorce.
