Trained in theatre, she can do everything from dancing to set design. But if she can’t find anything in her field, Emrick said she’s willing to learn a new skill. She was at Job Match 2012 at Silver City on Wednesday and said the hunt was going very well.
“I’m pleasantly surprised that there’s a lot of activity and a lot of people here. It’s a great place to come out for the day and search for some employment,” she said. “Everybody is very helpful and very friendly here."
Event organizers were expecting up to 2,000 people to check out jobs from 40 employers on scene. Organizer Dave Farrell said that with 1,000 jobs going unfilled in Thunder Bay, there’s something out there for everyone.
The best part about Job Match is networking.
“It’s amazing what links you can make,” he said.Resolute Forest Products’ Rhonda Davis agrees.
