Doing most anything and everything...

Instead of mobile signs advertising what's on sale, most are advertising wages and benefits. If you are in construction or some type of associated trade, you can basically have your pick of where you want to go. Alberta companies have been advertising into BC and Saskatchewan pulling people out of those provinces because we have such shortages in skilled workers.

Hell, even Tim Horton's is advertising work 4 hrs, get paid for 5 hrs and the 7/11 last week had a sign up promoting a $700 sign-up bonus.

I don't think there is one labor sector that isn't looking for people.

What type of work do (or should I say, did) you do? I can email you some adds or put you onto some leads.

chug_A_bug,

Check out these on-line postings for Edmonton, AB...

http://workingedmontonjobs.canada.co...ookid=edmonton

I think there are over 2,000 jobs listed on this one, which uses ads from the major newspapers in the city.

What has happened in Edmonton is that most everyone with a ticket or piece of paper from a tech school has no problem getting a position in just about any field. What is now happening is what I call "Poaching" from other firms. It's basically word of mouth, as the firm I used to work for is offering a $1,000 bonus to any employee who recommends someone to the partners who gets hired. I think most have given up the advertisement route, as anyone who is employable already is.

Skilled employees are really in demand, especially in construction and oil field work. Drywallers, Welders, Carpenters, Electricians, Framers, you name it, there are lots of jobs available. I counted 7 temporary signs advertising for people on my way home today.

If you have your welding ticket, a good friend of mine is a welder and I can get you some info on where to apply. He is a structural steel welder, not autobody though.

Experience is almost a good a teacher as schooling, IMHO, and if you have the experience you shouldn't have much of a problem.

Best of luck.

HAHA, I'm a certified welder and I doubt I can find a job in this city to save my life.

And, I wouldn't mind living in the great white north also, I'll think about that.

Hey Mikey,

Pack up your snow tires and head on out. My buddy was working for the local welding union, so he has jumped around a bit, but he has NEVER been without work. Last few months he was doing a bridge rebuild right downtown and now he's out at a plant doing some work during a shutdown. He's looking to say relatively close to home.

He could head up to Fort McMurrey almost anytime he wants, as they are absolutly desperate for people up there. Living accommodations suck, from what I've heard, but with the OT and long hrs, all you really need is a place to sleep.

Bullyboy - Calgary is going like crazy as well, but housing is a bit more inflated. Besides, you would have to put up with all the Flames fans...

If you're young and not tied down with kids, wife, etc... I would seriously look at the opportunity, as we haven't seen this type of growth since the 1980's and it is expected to last for at least another 10 years.

(I sound like an advertisement for the City of Edmonton...sheesh )

Doug
