SUCCESSFUL FIRST JOB FAIR IN SLAVE LAKE

Last Friday, on October 21, 2022, Community Futures, in partnership with Northern Lakes College, organized the very first Slave Lake Regional Job Fair at the NLC gym.


This event aimed to provide the labour needs the businesses in our region required. There were 38 participating businesses, with 150 jobseekers present at the Job Fair. Government agencies, education, retail stores, restaurants, financial services, personal & health services, forestry, and oil & gas industries were present. Many of these companies were looking to fill their variety of job vacancies. Companies were collecting resumes from people who came intending to find suitable jobs. This provided a great face-to-face introduction and a memorable way to elevate yourself above other applicants, and some of them were even offered on-the-spot job interviews.


Amongst the crowd, many young students also came to see the Job Fair. Students were very excited to learn about all the types of jobs available. One student has mentioned to us that she is "pretty pleased with the willingness of most of these employers to train young applicants like her who have no prior work experience."

The event was a success. Community Futures was able to connect those who were seeking employment to the major industries recruiting in our region. We hope to make this an annual event and see you all next year!
