Job Fair 2010

Job Fair 2010 addresses the needs of employers in the current economy.

Today’s labour market looks much different than it did a few years ago, and with many employers now having the ability to draw from an unusually large labour pool, employee recruitment and retention has become an entirely new ballgame. With this in mind, the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Medicine Hat College to bring an emphasis on the needs of employers to their Job Fair for 2010.

Executive Director of the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce, Lisa Kowalchuk, commented that “this is a valuable event for employers looking to recruit in the next year. Not only does it afford them an opportunity to attract quality employees, but also a chance to gain insight and knowledge that will help them effectively select new employees and streamline their recruitment processes.”

Several new components have been added to this year’s event, including a networking breakfast for employers from 10:00 – 11:00 AM, followed by a keynote presentation by Charmaine Hammond, an internationally renowned speaker, author, instructor, and business owner from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM. The focus of Hammond’s presentation will be ‘Igniting Resilience” and will provide insight on how to handle change and uncertainty in today’s economy.

Other benefits for employers attending Job Fair 2010 include the opportunity to participate in one-on-one business consultation sessions with a professional management consultant, as well as the chance to connect with job seekers in a unique “reverse interview” panel, in which job seekers will be able to question employers on how best to maximize their chances of firstly being noticed, and ultimately getting hired. Also, in addition to the luxury of meeting potential candidates face-to face, participating in this year’s event will also give employers an opportunity to generate interest and advertise their businesses in high traffic areas of the Medicine Hat College. Furthermore, employers will have access to free interview facilities to recruit on the day of event and the ability to follow-up on their initial contacts by posting on the Medicine Hat College’s internet job board free of charge.

Registration forms and information regarding Job Fair 2010 are available at the Medicine Hat College, the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce, or online at

The event is proudly sponsored by Alberta Employment and Immigration, Service Canada and the Economic Development Alliance of Southeastern Alberta.

    Canada immigration law have just announced they are going for the crooked brokers which take. immigration law authorities are going after these with prison punishments of a couple of years as being the deterrent, this can be fantastic news for all those hoping to emigrate, so how many of them brokers is there?
