Aboriginal Job Fair Becomes Huge Success


LETHBRIDGE: The first ever "Creating Opportunities" Aboriginal job fair in Lethbridge was a massive success.

Organizers were hoping to see around 200 aboriginal job hunters show up, but instead watched as an estimated 400 came through the doors.

Executive Director of the the Aboriginal Council of Lethbridge Jacinda Weiss was thrilled with the turn-out, and noted that both the employers set up at the Coast Hotel and those looking for work were very excited about the event.

She noted that a large number of those who came out had great resumes and were enthusiastic to find work. Weiss added that the potential employers were also more than happy to get to sit down one on one with a large, skilled work force that can help their organization.

Employers at the event were offering jobs in areas from civil engineering to entry level positions.

Weiss commented that because of the success of the job fair, they're already considering making it an annual event.
