AMTA employment expo aims to connect employers with job seeker

The Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) is presenting four Employment in Transportation Expos (ETEs) over the next two years.

“The expo serves to bridge the gap between job seekers and employers,” said AMTA President Lorraine Card. “The AMTA continues to be a catalyst for the evolving world of transportation, and as such, has the opportunity to encourage employment and connect job seekers with great jobs.”

A focus solely on any transportation-based career isn’t the only thing setting ETEs apart from your average career fair. The event is broken into two parts. First, there will be a morning session for employers in which they can engage with keynote speakers on topics such as hiring practices, retaining employees and hiring a diverse workforce. In the afternoon, the employers will be set up in a trade booth setting open to the public.

Attendees will be greeted upon arrival to determine what their employment needs are, then directed to potential employers. Attendees are also welcome to visit other booths to make further introductions or ask questions.
