Career Services Event

May 7, 2019

As a result of the continuing jobs crisis here in Calgary, MPs Michelle Rempel and Pat Kelly are holding a free Career Services event.

This is not a job fair.

This event aims to assist those who are looking for work by connecting them with service providers and resources that can assist with job search, resume writing, interview skills, enhance online job search techniques and more.

When: May 23, 6:00- 8:00 PM
Where: Foothills Alliance Church (333 Edgepark Blvd N.W.).
Cost: Free

This free, come-and-go event will showcase local organizations and resources available to individuals in Calgary that can assist with a job search, or help with the challenges that come with unemployment.

Attendees will also be able to connect with local post-secondary institutions to discuss options around furthering education, and with groups who can point attendees to resources available for managing the stress related to a job loss.
