Forward Summit partners with Lynx Indigenous Career Connection to present Indigenous Students Career Day taking place on February 27th at Calgary TELUS Convention Centre.
While hundreds of Indigenous and industry leaders from across Canada meet at the convention centre for Forward Summit, a few rooms over, Indigenous students and alumni from across Alberta will network with recruiters to build successful careers of their own.
Part of creating pathways to employment is providing channels for organizations to connect with the future talent in Canada. Lynx Indigenous Career Connection offers career opportunities with companies who are seeking skilled individuals for co-ops, internships, full-time or summer employment and posts around 800 jobs annually with no fee for students to participate.
Attendees at the career fair will network with employers and hear from successful, Indigenous community members like Denise Pothier, VP of Indigenous Relations at Stantec Consulting. Denise will share her journey to becoming an engineer and why education was critical to her success.
The Indigenous career day is an important component of Forward Summit, the Indigenous-led gathering of communities and businesses focused on economic reconciliation. The theme of Indigenous inclusion and education will play a major role in the conversations at the summit.
Indigenous students and alumni are invited to register for free to attend Indigenous Students Career Day at www.forwardsummit.ca.
Business leaders, community members and HR professionals who are interested in the three-day Forward Summit can visit www.forwardsummit.ca to learn more about the important conversations scheduled to take place.
