What is “Call Edge?”
Call Edge is a new venture that is presented in the form of a Practice Firm, or “Ghost Company.” It aides in bridging the gap between job seekers gaining hands-on experience and employers requiring more practical knowledge in their bank of potential employees. Call Edge will provide you with valuable experience within a simulated business environment, processing real time transactions and hands-on processes to help build your job portfolio.

What is offered at Call Edge?
By registering with Call Edge, participants are given the opportunity to develop hands-on work experience while conducting an active job search. Often, the clients who register with Call Edge are unemployed or underemployed individuals with some professional experience whose knowledge and skills need updating; or they may be starting a new career and want genuine work experience. Call Edge is a program designed for those who want to find a job quickly within a real firm.

How does a Practice Firm work?
Practice Firm participants market, relay product information, conduct surveys, and perform quality control exercises on an ongoing basis. This process provides experience to call centre agents, quality control supervisors and customer care associates. Participants gain valuable experience augmenting their customer services skills and/or developing sales skills. Computer upgrading is offered for all MS-Office applications to further complete a participant’s portfolio.

Practice Firm participants produce catalogues of their sponsor’s products and/or services. These catalogues are distributed to all PFs-some in hard copy, some online. This process provides experience to graphic designers, marketing associated and sales people.

Practice Firm participants earn a “virtual pay cheque.” These virtual monies are deposited in the participant’s virtual bank account. This process provides experience to pay roll clerks and human resource assistants.
