How do I obtain work in Alberta?
Looking for work is a challenging process. It requires having a
clear picture of the skills you have to offer employers and
identifying employers who need people with those skills. You have
to market your skills by contacting people and presenting your
qualifications effectively. In Alberta, many public and private
institutions provide services to help job seekers find work
opportunities and present their qualifications well on paper and in
interviews. However, the ultimate responsibility for finding work
rests with the job seeker.
The Alberta Learning Information Service (ALIS) website is a gateway to many work search resources and services:
- Government publications such as Advanced Techniques for Work Search and Work Search Basics can be ordered free of charge in Alberta or downloaded from the Internet.
- The Alberta Career Information Hotline, a career consulting and referral service for Albertans, can be accessed free of charge from anywhere in the province by telephone or fax.
- Alberta Works Centres provide career information, educational planning and employment assistance in communities throughout the province.
- Job banks post information about employment opportunities across Canada in a variety of industries and occupations.
