Interview with JobsInFortMcMurray
Jobisite: Can you give me a brief overview of your background and what it is you do in your work?
My background is in marketing and advertising, but my current role puts me in charge of connecting our business with both job seekers and employers in and around Fort McMurray.
We are ultimately looking to create a comprehensive resource for those looking to move to and work in Fort McMurray, and as such, ensuring our content touches on all these different areas is my top priority.
Jobisite: What inspired you to create your job website?
Fort mcmurray remains a very popular destination for job seekers across the globe. In addition to simply seeking out information on available jobs, we wanted to give users a true ‘all in one’ resource that provides current Fort McMurray news, as well as information on lifestyle, recreation, education, and more.
Jobisite: Are you working at the moment and do you blog full time?
As the business development officer for JobsinFortMcMurray.net, my role is to spread the word and connect our website with other organizations whose audience would find benefit in the type of information we provide.
I also assist with some of the online advertising and other marketing initiatives.
Jobisite: What advice would you give to job seekers looking at Fort McMurray?
Moving to Fort McMurray for work is a big step. I think you really need to do your homework, and look beyond just ‘the job’. It’s important for you to understand the Culture in Canada and Northern Alberta, as well as what sorts of educational and recreational opportunities that exist here.
