Total of 38 local employers on hand for job fair at YMCA

A total of 38 local employers were on hand to help host a job fair at the Lethbridge YMCA on Thursday.

Staff from Teamworks Career Centre told us there were close to 300 potential job seekers who came by to look into what profession they might be interested in pursuing.

“With the economy the way it is, you have people who are looking to maybe they’ve retired, but they want to come back to the workforce, so different opportunities that they’re looking for. And there’s some great employers here who are looking for people who can work full time, part time, seasonal, casual, all of the above,” says Barb Wolstoncroft, the manager of Teamworks Career Centre.

“It’s great for the employers to be here and able to share more about their companies and elaborate a bit more than what you could on maybe an online job posting. And for the employees or the job seekers, I guess being able to learn more about the companies and see where they might be a best fit,” said Erika Lauer, the talent management advisor of the Lethbridge YMCA.

Teamworks Career Centre is celebrating 31 years of assisting over 35,000 Albertans in finding new employment opportunities.
