The Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Alberta Provincial Council is pleased to invite you to our next Job Fair for Ukrainian Newcomers, tentatively scheduled for October 18, 2023. Our organization has hosted job fairs for Ukrainians in the past, each having hundreds of attendees. Employers were impressed by the level of education and professional experience demonstrated by the candidates.
The event will take place at St. John’s Cultural Centre, located at 10611-110 Avenue, Edmonton, AB. We believe that this fair will provide an excellent opportunity for employers to connect with a highly motivated and talented pool of job seekers, and we expect that your participation will be mutually beneficial for your company and our community.
As you may be aware, a significant portion of our newcomers are women facing challenges in securing employment. This difficulty is not a result of inadequate skills but rather stems from their limited exposure to suitable job opportunities. This is why we have organized this job fair with the aim of addressing this employment gap. Our preference is seeking collaborations with employers who have openings for entry-level positions, whether full-time or part-time, within regular business hours (e.g., 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM). However, if your employment opportunity falls out of our preference, we are still interested in your attendance as we have a wide applicant pool of job seekers.
Employers in the past have found success with conducting interviews and recruiting on the spot, and with providing translated recruiting materials related to your organization.
The fair will be promoted in the media using various platforms and social networks. As part of registration, you will also have access to our resume database, receiving access to hundreds of resumes.
If you are interested in participating in this Job Fair, please reach UCC-APC at (780) 414-1624 or through firstname.lastname@example.org before September 15. Please note, that there will be a registration fee to reserve a table. If you are unable to attend this event, but have vacancies and are interested in hiring Ukrainians, please contact us as well.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
