Partner Spotlights are our way to shine a light on some of our amazing local partners across the country and give them a platform to tell their unique story. Olivia, Community Liaison & Employment Resource Counsellor of Career Edge in Prince Edward County, wants to share hers!
Tell us about your business:
Career Edge has been offering free employment services to youth and adults for over 30 years. We help job-seekers of all ages, and employers, get access to the services they need; whether it’s hiring, training, or job search. We also have youth programs and access to placements and apprenticeship opportunities. We offer a variety of virtual workshops for job readiness training and have a free online job board throughout our website.
What is one thing you would like people to know about your business?
That we are your “one-stop-shop” for all things employment and our services are free and accessible by anyone of any age or experience!
What made you want to get into business here?
I wanted to work for an organization that shared the same values as me, where I could liaise with community partners and market our services to those who need it most.
What’s your favourite part about owning or managing the business?
My favourite part of working with Career Edge is connecting with a wonderful team of staff whose goal is to help others. We are all here to encourage, support, and guide individuals to meet and exceed their employment goals!
What local business would you like to see on GetintheLoop?
If not already, Off The Hook Boutique in Trenton would be a wonderful business to participate in the app! Their team posts wonderful sales and promotions, so I think they would benefit from joining the GetintheLoop community.
Is there a community cause or event that you support that you would like to give a shoutout to?
We are so grateful to United Way HPE for all of the great work they do in our community.
Where can people find your business?
How can people contact you?

When you’re not working/running your business what is your favourite thing to do?
I love to read, spend time outdoors, shop local, and spend time with family and friends!
