PET OF THE WEEK

Blackie Hello, my name is Blackie! I am a bashful pooch, so a calm and quiet home will be best for me. Kids are pretty cool, but I prefer them to be a bit older. My paw-fect home will be active, structured and give me lots of loves! Gram and Gramps are older and you love them tons, so why not adopt a senior dog like me? Food, water and love – that’s all I need to be happy. Oh and a soft, cushiony bed for these old bones to relax on. I like to keep this coat of mine in tip top shape, so regular trips to the doggy barber are a must. Well, that’s what you need to know about me – get here and adopt me now!

Reference Number: A17265411 Name: Blackie

Included in the adoption fee: - Spay/Neuter surgery - Microchipping - First set of vaccines - Complimentary post-adoption vet exam - And so much more!

Age: 12 years Sex: Neutered Male Species: Dog Breed: Border Collie X Spaniel Color: Black & White

Working Wise Dear Working Wise: I attended a job fair recently and I didn’t get any call backs for interviews. Am I doing something wrong? Signed Confused Dear Confused: Alberta has the second-lowest unemployment rate in Canada right now at just over four per cent – so there are lots of job opportunities.

Do you have a work-related question? Send your questions to Working Wise, at charles.strachey@gov.ab.ca. Charles Strachey is a manager with Alberta Human Services. This column is provided for general information.

It’s a bit puzzling that you haven’t heard back from any employers. It’s hard to guess why, but some job seekers do not use job fairs to their full advantage.

I have attended a number of job fairs and used the opportunity to ask employers what tips they would give job seekers. Here are some great job fair tips plus a few pointers from employers for your next job fair. Before the fair: • Find out which employers will be there and learn a little about what they do and what positions they are trying to fill. • Update your resumé, have someone proofread it, and print at least 20 copies on good-quality paper. Use a folder to protect your resumés from creases and stains. • Prepare an “elevator speech”—a 15-second introduction that tells the employer about your key skills/experience and the kind of job you are looking for. Practice your elevator speech before you go and be ready to sell yourself. • Dress like you are going to a job interview—the people you talk to may be making the hiring decision or might want to interview you on the spot. At the fair: • Arrive early so you can visit the employers you are most interested in first. Visit the remaining employers afterward and keep an open mind—you might discover an exciting new career direction. • Use your time well. If you are waiting in line to talk to an employer, try to listen to what the employer is saying to other job seekers. • Always behave as though your future boss is watching you. Be polite to other job seekers, considerate of each employer's time, and don't talk on your mobile phone while waiting in line for an employer. • Greet the recruiter with a smile and a firm handshake. Be friendly, enthusiastic and ready to ask questions and answer their questions. • Do not just hand in your resumé—you can do that via email—this is your chance to put a face and personality to your resumé and start building a relationship. • Do not call in sick to your current job to attend the job fair—your current employer might be there too—this has happened before. • Do not show up at the job fair in your current employer’s uniform—most employers assume you will treat them the same way you treat your current employer. • Ask what the next step is in the hiring process to show your interest and enthusiasm. • Collect business cards and send a “thank you” email or note re-stating your interest in the position and your qualifications. You can find out about upcoming job fairs at: http://humanservices.alberta.ca/jobfairs and by following your local Alberta Works Facebook page: • www.facebook.com/calgaryjobsfeed • www.facebook.com/centralalbertajobs • www.facebook.com/edmontonjobs • www.facebook.com/fortmcmurrayjobs • www.facebook.com/lethbridgejobs • www.facebook.com/medicinehatjobs • www.facebook.com/aboriginaltrainingjobs Good luck at your next job fair!
