Finding Employment

Sometimes you think you need to step into the world of full time employment before making a decision about, or following through with, post secondary training.  The decision of where to work can be a difficult one.  You may need a job that will help you "test the waters" in a profession you might be interested in pursuing.   You may also just want a job that will fill your day with something that does not require the intense attention that your high school courses required. You may also use this time as a way to save for post-secondary and simply want to find a job that pays well.  Whatever the reason, there are several sites that can help you do this efficiently!

The Alberta Government has a vested interest in helping those who want to find a job be successful in their search.  The Alberta Work Search Online in the ALIS website will help you find job search engines, figure out networking, write a resume, and prepare for an interview.  Take some time and investigate this site.  It can be helpful in your employment preparation.

If you want to work in the Wainwright area, the Chamber of Commerce has created a website that shares fairly detailed information about every business in town that is a member  of the Chamber of Commerce.  This resource gives potential employees background and history of the business, describes the jobs within the company and contact information.  If you are looking for a job, this is an efficient place to begin looking.

Last, but certainly not least, when looking for employment you need to consider your own network of friends, family and acquaintances. People who know you may be willing to offer you opportunities or share information they would not offer to a stranger.
