We are very pleased to let you know that we have started a brand new initiative that will benefit both job seekers and local area employers. Here’s how it works from both ends:
If you are an employer: Let’s say that you are an employer with a landscaping business in Rocky View and you are recruiting for landscapers or general labourers. All you have to do is contact our office and request résumés for people seeking work as labourers or landscapers. We then forward those résumés to you, within one business day. The service is absolutely free for you to access and requires no registration.
If you are a job seeker: Let’ say that you are looking for work as a labourer or landscaper. Come into our office and register with us. You will have to sign a consent form to give us permission to forward your résumé to third parties. When an employer contacts us to have résumés forwarded to them for labourers or landscapers, your résumé will be forwarded to that employer. It’s that easy.
To get more information or details on this service, either as an employer or a job seeker, please contact us and we will be happy to answer all of your questions!
Online Resume & Cover Letter Critiquing
If you are unable to make it into our office during our office hours, we may still be able to assist you! We offer resume and cover letter critiquing online, via our website. If you would like your current resume or cover letter(s) critiqued, click here and register. The information requested on that page is information that the Alberta Government requires us to collect. All of your personal information is protected, as per FOIPP. Once you have registered, you will be able to upload your reseme and/or cover letter to us. Please give us up to three business days to tend to your request.
