Winnipeg, October 6, 2010 - The City of Winnipeg is pleased to announce its first Career Symposium, which will be held on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Winnipeg Convention Centre.

The Career Symposium is our opportunity to showcase the wide range of careers available within the City of Winnipeg. Members of the public will have opportunities to learn about career options that may be of interest now or in the future.

The day is intended to target both our current and future recruitment needs.

The day will also be used to reach out to the community including high school and post secondary students, Aboriginal youth, Newcomers/Immigrants, and others to help people understand the benefits of working towards a career with the City.

As part of the day's activities, City departments will have interactive displays that will be staffed by employees from a variety of areas to speak about their professions and occupations. There will also be a "Speakers' Corner," featuring staff who will talk about their own unique and interesting career path.

The Symposium is free of charge and offers informational take-home materials and hands-on displays.

More information will be provided in the coming weeks about the day's activities. A poster can now be downloaded from the Symposium website at: http://winnipeg.ca/hr/careersymp.stm

Please note – the November 30 Career Symposium date was rescheduled from October 7.
