PSC Website Query
Anyone else having trouble accessing the site this morning?

I think they announced some sort of maintenance downtime, but I can't remember with certainty.

RESOLVED: Adecco in Ottawa
Wondering if anyone can confirm/debunk the suspicion I have that Adecco's no longer maintaining an office in Ottawa...?

Turns out they're in the ByWard Market area nowadays.

Resume Question - Security Clearance and Police Record check

I'm preparing my resume and I have hit something I'm not sure about.

I have a security clearance and in a couple weeks I will have been checked for a police record with the Gatineau police. 

I am wondering if it is a good idea to say that I have a security clearance, and that I have been checked by the cops. ;)

If so, how do I handle that in terms of a "section name"?

I know a fair number of people are looking for jobs right now, so hopefully this will help someone.  The following places have help wanted signs up:

Brixton's on Sparks for a cook
Cafe Paradiso (I think that's its name) on Bank
Tim Horton's on Bank (all positions)
Hermosa Fashion on Bank
Royal Oak on Bank for a assistant management position
Booster Juice and about a gazillion other places in the Rideau Centre

All the shops on Bank are between Laurier and Somerset.

I'm job hunting also, so I'd appreciate it if people posted the help wanted signs they see here, even if they feel they have enough competition and mostly post for places they won't be applying like me ;)

I'm job hunting again.  I'm actually getting fairly frustrated at this point since I've been looking since OcTranspo went off strike after quitting the last job because of the strike.  So anyway, any help is appreciated.  Where do you know is hiring?  I'm looking primarily for retail, clerical, or landscaping work.  I have over 3 years retail experience.  I'm pretty much an Anglophone.  I am not fit enough for the heavy lifting landscaping work, more stuff like racking, cleaning up, and planting.

Job hunting and posting
The Hunt:

Hi there,

I'm looking for a job right now and thought maybe people could help. If you 1) know of a good temp agency or two in Ottawa and could give me the name(s) and other any other info I'd need to contact the company(ies) please let me know, 2) know of a good job opportunity, please give what info you have. Thank you, a small amount about my qualifications and what I'm looking for can be found below. Thank you!

I'm thinking that at the moment I'd like a administrative assistant, data entry position, or government position, but I'm not restricting my hunt to only those things. I prefer downtown core or easy access by transit. I'm a decent typist, I have a diploma in business from Algonquin College, I have three years of retail experience and a small amount of experience answering phones, doing data entry, and filing in an office. I, unfortunately, only speak an insignificant amount of French.

The Opportunities:

If anyone is looking for general retail type jobs here are some possibilities I know of: Empire Theatres, World Exchange Plaza may be hiring. This is good part time work for students. I've worked for them in the past and it is a good place to work. Decent breaks, a decent amount off concession combos, and if you aren't working you can get yourself and one other person into movies that aren't pass restricted for free. Also, I'd recommend just looking around the Rideau Centre for help wanted signs. In the west end, Tim Hortons on Baseline is hiring.

A public service/servant announcement
Want a day job, but don't like the idea of working in the government where you don't see the point of what you're doing? How would you like to make $18-22 an hour? There are loads of entry-level positions in the government for Access to Information and Privacy! You deal directly with the public, and are helping make sure everyone can access government records. Biligualism is useful, but most departments are ok with English-only. And ATIP is very transferrable, so if you don't like the people at one department, you can go to another department and basically do the same job (not all ATIP shops are created equal). There are also loads of opportunities for career advancement (you can hop departments for a promotion, too; I sure did).

I feel so bad; I'm going to ditch not one but two great ATIP shops for better jobs this month! And they both need good people for entry level positions!

I personally think this sort of work is ideal for people who've worked at call centres, partly because I used to be one, but also because the sort of data management you did there will lend itself well here, you don't get abused by clients, you make a LOT more money, and you're (usually) smart and fast enough to do the work. Not to mention you'll never work another holiday as long as you live. Students very welcome!

Now: how to get these jobs?
1.) You can offer to do casual (maxiumum 90 working days per calendar year, basically 4 months per department, and you can hop around when you're done your term), which just requires contacting the department you'd like to work for and giving them a resume and some references.

2.)You can also go through a temp agency (personally, I like Excel, 'cause they pay me a decent amount, but The Associates Group specializes in ATIP; they pay $16/hr for an AS-01 position, though, and you'd get at least $20/hr for that position if you worked casual), and tell them you're interested in doing ATIP. They can often be useful in matching employees to jobs, and you don't have the 4-month limit if you go through an agency. They'll want a resume and references, too.

3.)Term and permanent positions have to be earned through competitions open to the public. They can be found here. You can even set up an automatic alert that will send any relevant opportunities to you via email.

ATIP needs good people...they need YOU!

Fight...upgrade bugs
Fight...our ATIP system!

My work is losing its systems analyst. Systems analsysts with ATIPflow/Accesspro experience are essentially non-existant. We are very seriously considering an analyst-less contingency. I'm not sure I'm authorised to disclose my department, but it's government. Biligualism preferred. Work hours flexible, may need to work overtime on short notice etc... PLEASE respond if you have ANY experience with these systems, not necessarily in an administrator's role (details welcome).

Temp agencies
Can anyone recommend some good temp agencies to work for? I've had some pretty awful luck with the ones I've worked with in the past, and I don't really know where else to look.
