Local organizations are coming together to host a youth hiring fair, with the aim of connecting young job seekers with a variety of entry-level positions and career growth opportunities.
The City of Calgary’s Youth Employment Centre (YEC) is set to offer its annual youth hiring fair for the 24th year, at The Big Four Building in Stampede Park, on Thursday, April 6, 1:30 to 6:00 p.m.
With more than 80 employers looking to fill over 5,000 positions, people aged 15 to 25 will have the opportunity to start building connections.
As summer approaches, many young people are looking to get a seasonal position that’ll earn them some cash. Employers at the fair will be looking to fill seasonal, full-time and part-time positions
– as well as some internships and apprenticeships.
A variety of industries will be present at the fair. Sectors that are represented include hospitality, food services, retail sales, customer service trades, social support services, recreation, financial sports,
“The nice thing for people attending is that it’s a good opportunity to speak with multiple employers. There’s such a good variety,” Leita Blasetti, a spokesperson for the YEC said.
Preparing and dressing to impress will go a long way in this fair.
“We're happy to see our candidates. Prepare, prepare, prepare and look at our website, and most importantly, come dressed like you’re going to a job interview because you might get an interview,”
