1000 Attend CFN Job Fairs

Working with Harmony Beef, on Friday of last week (Jan 21) and the Saturday before (Jan 27) CFN held a two part job fair right here at the Centre. Jan 27th also included TD Bank conducting interviews of existing CFN clients. Incredibly, the combined number of job seekers at CFN was more than 1000. TD Bank also interviewed 20+ on Friday  with the intention of filling a number of customer service positions and Harmony Beef's intention is to hire more than 150 when all is said and done.


Here at CFN the world we imagine for Calgary is a community that values diversity, in which people of all backgrounds find and create opportunities to fulfil dreams and participate fully as citizens. It is our hope that participating in a collective gathering with other job seekers  allowed those in attendance to discover several things one can use to improve their chances of landing a job. Thank you to Harmony Beef and TD, and a big tip of the hat to all those here at CFN and the volunteers who worked so hard to make this event happen. Best of luck in your search and keep your eyes open for more upcoming events here at the Centre For Newcomers!
