NETWORK>>GETWORK – Saturday October 3
We are pleased to announce that our next Job & Career Fair will be Saturday October 3, from 1pm – 4pm in the Wildrose Rooms at the Rocky View Education Centre. Whether you are someone looking for permanent full-time work, a student looking for work for the Holiday season or looking for part-time employment, this is the event can’t you can’t miss. As always, there will be schools and training providers on hand to answer any questions on their programs and admission requirements. Please make sure to mark your calendars for this event, as Network>>Getwork is only presented twice in the year; once in the fall and once in the spring.
Make sure that you come into the Airdrie Employment Office before going to the Job Fair, as we can assist you in ensuring that you have the best possible resume possible for that day. We can also assist you by doing mock interviews with you, so that you will be well spoken in your interactions with the employers on that day.
We look forward to seeing you on October3!
Now in Beiseker 2 Days a Month!
We are now out in Beiseker every first and third Friday of the month, from 10 am until 3pm. If you are in Beiseker, Kathyrn, Irricana or Acme, you no longer have to come into our Airdrie office to get help with your job search and career development needs. We will be working out of the Community Links Building, so we’ll be easy to find.
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.
