Project LINK - career counseling
OSSTF/FEESO offers Project LINK, a career counseling service for members who may wish to explore career alternatives.
Project LINK (Career Counseling) is for members who are experiencing difficulties practicing their professions/vocations to such a degree that they are seriously considering other work options. Some typical issues might include:

The program may also assist members who want to explore external and vocational opportunities. The counseling service typically consists of a vocational evaluation followed by two hour counseling session. During the session the result of assessment materials are reviewed and possible career options are explored and suggested.
Project LINK neither provides funds for tuition nor retraining fees. It also does not provide job placement services.
In order to access Project LINK, a completed application form must be forwarded by a member’s Bargaining Unit President.
