Thriving in your job is about more than finding the right employment opportunities. It’s about developing the skills and confidence to live a fulfilling, empowered life.
Low Entropy’s employment services go far beyond helping individuals find sustainable employment. We equip them with the skills they need to be empathetic leaders in our community. We work with individuals to be successful from the inside out, combining pragmatic, on-the-job skills with personal growth and development.
Our employment services remain free and accessible to all individuals, including immigrants and first-time job seekers, because of our generous donors.

Our comprehensive, two-week Essential Skills Training breaks down into three core components.
Practicum Work Experience
This Practicum work experience will provide participants with opportunities to apply theory to practice and gain valuable real-world work-related experience. Participants will be able to demonstrate how they are capable of solving complex problems and working collaboratively as part of a team.
We support participants to achieve their employment or career goals. During the pre-employment coaching, participants will gain valuable skills to help them secure meaningful employment in a fulfilling career.
The Government of Canada and other national and international agencies have identified and validated 9 key essential skills for the workplace. These essential skills are necessary developed abilities acquired through deliberate, systematic, and sustained efforts to smoothly and adaptively carry out complex activities or job functions involving ideas, things, and/or people.
During our two-week training, we teach you what you need to know in order to have confidence in finding and securing employment, including:
• Writing and preparing a resume
• Job interviewing
• Writing and preparing a cover letter
• Searching for employment
• The application process
• Following up on an application
• Personal branding
• Setting up and managing a LinkedIn profile
• Negotiating salary and benefits
• Workers rights and protections
These lessons (and many others) ensure you’re prepared for every stage of the employment process.
We know that success isn’t a destination—it’s a mindset. That’s why we go beyond the bare-boned skills to support employment-seekers personally as well as professionally. Through leadership training, goal-setting, positive thinking, public speaking, and even team-building exercises designed to push you beyond your comfort zone, we do more than just train workers. We inspire and empower community leaders.
Our Employment Service program also includes individual life coaching as well as specialized training designed to help individuals achieve specific career goals.
Continued Community Support
Just because you land your dream job doesn’t mean the community support ends! The Employment Services program continues through the transition period and an individual’s working experience. Our Enliven life coaches will continue to work with you throughout your career, and our Low Entropy community will continue to support you in both your professional and personal development. Our trainings, resources, and life coaching stays holistic and personalized through every step in your career.
We believe that changing the world starts with changing our community, and changing our community starts with empowering individuals.
