Airdrie Employment and the Boys & Girls Club of Airdrie are joining forces and efforts to organize and host a youth Job Fair on Monday June 8, 2015, from 3:30 pm – 6:00 pm, at The Centre -200 East Lake Crescent (Ron Ebbesen Arena). This Job Fair is intended for youth who are looking for summer work, and perhaps beyond the summer. If you are an employer interested in participating in this event to recruit young workers for the summer months or beyond, you can register at the following link:
There is no charge for an employer to participate. For more information, contact Airdrie Employment at 403.948.9711
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.
Access Our Workshops on Free of Charge
In an effort to enhance our services to the residents of Rocky View, we are offering you the opportunity to access some of our job search and career development workshops, via video on You Tube. To access these workshops, you will need to register. Phone 403.948.9711, so we can acquire your registration information, email address and find out which workshop you would like access to. We will then email you the link to access the workshop. This link will be valid for one week .You must have a Gmail account to sign in and access the video.
To sign up for a You Tube/Gmail account:
We realize that not everyone can access our workshop presentations in the evenings or on weekends. However, if you are able to attend in person, we strongly encourage you to attend our workshops in the community, as the opportunity for discussion and questions cannot be replicated on You Tube.
The following workshops are currently available on You Tube:
- What is My “Type” of Career ( A Myers-Briggs, personality-based career development workshop)
- Resumes & Cover Letters
- Social Media & Job Search
You must be a resident of Rocky View to access these workshops on You Tube.
Come back regularly to check the Calendar to see what days we will be closed, what we are doing and where we will be in the community, and what Job Search and Career Development Workshops we will be presenting.
