Hundreds of job seekers were at the Metropolitan Centre in downtown Calgary looking to start the next chapter of their life after recent layoffs.
The job fair was put on by the recruitment company “hire ten” where it has convinced eighteen Calgary companies to commit six hundred new hires over the next three months.
Shawn Baldwin from hire ten put together the entire event in four weeks and says now more than ever job seekers need to stay positive and finding new work is always possible.
Baldwin says networking is really the only thing you can do if you experienced a recent layoff and he wants to send a positive message to both employers and job hunters.
The service is completely free and Baldwin says potential employees have to remember there are a number of industries doing quite well right now.
