Event description

Description

Hire10 is putting on another Hiring Event here in Calgary and this time we are very excited to be sponsored by and hosted at The Clarion Hotel & Conference Centre!

Hire10 is an initiative that endeavours to move the focus away from the doom and gloom surrounding Calgary's challenging economy and focus on something more useful. The organizations that are doing positive things right now and hiring Calgarians.

This event is an opportunity for Calgarians to meet Recruiters and Hiring Managers from companies that are committed to helping Calgarians and have pledged to hire 10 Calgarians in the next 3 months. Many companies will hire much more than the ten they pledge!

Human Resources professionals will also be on hand to provide free advice on your job search including resume, networking and interview advice.

Tickets for sessions starting at 10:00, 11:00, 1:00 and 2:00 are Free.

FAQs

There are tickets for different sessions - why?

You may have seen career fairs recently where there were excessive line-ups and waiting. That may look great on the news but it isn't necessary. Our events are focused on you getting into the room as quickly as possible so you can spend your time talking to employers instead of waiting simply to enter the event. We stagger everyone's entry through having multiple start times and requesting pre-registration. When you register in advance you are guaranteed to get in at the time you select.

Should I come in the morning session? Will more jobs be available for me?

Very few people will be hired on the spot so the number of jobs won't change in the afternoon from the morning. We recommend coming at a time that works best for you. Now that we are limiting attendance you should have time to meet more employers and we are always working toward shorter line-ups. There are a limited number of paid tickets available so we anticipate very short wait times inside the event for the morning job seekers that choose to purchase tickets.

Afternoons are typically quieter as the event progresses.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

There are no ID requirements but you need to be at least 16 years of age or older to attend.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The event is at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Centre and there is a lot of free parking. Transit also stops right nearby so that is always an option as well.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring your ticket (paper or digital is fine) and bring some copies of your resume. Don't bring outside food and drinks. Some employers will not accept your resume on site but may still review it with you. Different organizations have different required processes. However it is a good idea to have copies with you just in case.

Will companies be hiring at this event?

Companies intend to hire qualified people they meet at the event. However, they will not be hiring you on the spot. The event is a starting point but there are always more steps you need to take in order to be hired. The pledge employers make is to hire Calgarians but they still need to follow their internal hiring process.

There will probably lots of people there, with line-ups. Shouldn't I just stay home and send resumes online?

NO! Face to face meetings are always better. This is a great networking opportunity to meet a lot of great people as well as spend a short time talking to Recruiters at companies that are often challenging to get a hold of. This is a great opportunity to get out of the house and do something that can truly impact your future.

Any Networking suggesstions?

When at an event like this most Job Seekers are only interested in one thing. Asking an employer if they have a job for them. You need to recognize a couple of important things:

1) People attending are open to talking to you, even though they are nervous too. Remember that these smart, qualified, nice people will find jobs. Take this opportunity to get to know them know before they find work and are more challenging to track down.

2) When an employer tells you to go to their website to check out their jobs online, don't get frustrated. Ensure you take note of the Recruiters first name, company name, and ideally their role at the company. Look them up on LinkedIn. After looking online at their jobs you now have a contact that you can reach out to so that someone can at least consider you for that role and you don't fall into a black hole.
