Ca­reer Expo re­turns with new em­ploy­ers and job op­por­tu­ni­ties

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Alberta - CON­TRIB­UTED

Medicine Hat Col­lege’s (MHC) Ca­reer Expo will re­turn on Oct. 17 with more ex­hibitors and new ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties from em­ploy­ers through­out Western Canada.

The expo, which runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Cen­ten­nial Hall, is open to the com­mu­nity.

The pur­pose of this event is to high­light avail­able, or po­ten­tial em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties and ser­vices, for job seek­ers and stu­dents.

“Most times when peo­ple are look­ing for work or con­tem­plat­ing a ca­reer change, they don’t know where to start. This event serves as a venue for meet­ing with hu­man re­sources (HR) pro­fes­sion­als face- to-face, find­ing out more about their or­ga­ni­za­tion and what they do, and get­ting tips for stand­ing out from other ap­pli­cants,” says Shelly Drefs, ca­reer ser­vices as­sis­tant with MHC’s Ca­reer Cen­tre.

Drefs men­tions that there will be many re­turn­ing ex­hibitors and also some new com­pa­nies in in­dus­tries rang­ing from cryp­tocur­rency and avi­a­tion to hous­ing man­u­fac­tur­ing and so­cial ser­vices.

“There is a lot of in­no­va­tive things hap­pen­ing in our re­gion, so this is a great fo­rum for at­ten­dees to dis­cover what’s trend­ing and how that may im­pact the labour mar­ket. We en­cour­age ev­ery­one to stop by ev­ery booth and get to know all of the em­ploy­ers. Al­though an or­ga­ni­za­tion is in the health in­dus­try doesn’t mean they won’t be look­ing for peo­ple with expertise in ac­count­ing, power en­gi­neer­ing, trades or gen­eral help to en­sure the daily op­er­a­tions of their fa­cil­i­ties run smoothly.”
