Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Salurdav, July 3, 1971 Hire-a-student offices open throughout south Alberta ICC student finds jobs for fellows Taber has CMC for Students Lam Knibbs, a University of Lethbridge student ori- ginally from Taber, is the Canada Manpower Centre for Students job counsellor in Taber this summer. Larry works out of an of- fice in the Post Office, and is also in charge of the town's regular manpower re- gional employment office for the summer. He says both the job sup- ply and'student worker sup- ply have been a bit slow up to now, but with high school completed, "we're ready for the rush." There are a number of farm work openings, particu- larly in beets, moving bails, moving pipe and running farm equipment for those with some experience. Building construction and highway construction open- ings are also becoming available for the male stu- dent, and some clerking and Larry Knibbs surveys Taber from ptop Post Office building office work is available for females. "Everyone in Taber has been as co-operative as they could be with us, and I think most people looking for jobs will te able to get some- Larry said. He said he does have some problems because it is the first time a summer Man- power student office has been open in Taber: both employers and students seeking work forget to check at Manpower first. "The Taber Times has been great with stories, and many of the local businesses are including mention of us in their advertising now, so I think that-should improve." He said householders can also help, by employing stu- dents to do odd jobs around the house, cleanup work, landscaping, painting and so on. Taber town council is pay- ing the salary of a secretary to work with Larry, and the Taber Chamber of Com- merce, the council and the Taber Times are supplying advertising funds. The office is provided by CMC. The secretary, Taber high school student Alice Bek- kering, is in the office each day and the telephone num- ber'is 223-3232.

He's the Canada Man- power Centre for Students development officer for Pincher Creek, Fort Mac- leod and Claresholm for the summer. A Lethbridge Community College student from Pincher Creek, Jim says business in the three offices has been picking up rapidly since mid- June. With high school finish- ed now, it will become even busier. He says farmers, manufac- turing plants, construction companies and other em- ployers have been helpful so far, but as the summer pro- gresses he expects even more jobs to show up. Offices, stores and the like can also help, and house- holders with odd jobs, clean- up work, landscaping, paint- ing and so on could employ students to do the work. Jim said local newspapers throughout his region have been co-operating to spread word of both his offices and his need for many summer jobs. "Our main concern is to put local students to work In their own areas so Uiey won't have to move to other he said. "We think we can find as many jobs in the towns as there are stu- dents especially high school students who want them." He said that while there are many university stu- dents from the towns, most have either long since found jobs or were seeking them in the city in which they attend- ed university or college. Each of the offices Jim is responsible for are staffed full time, including when he is out job searching. In Pincher Creek, he is as- sisted by Jeanne Jenkins, a University of Alberta grad- uate from Pincher Creek. The office there is in the United Church, telephone 627-3734. The church had planned to organize a hire a student campaign this summer, so is actually doing much of the required work. In Claresholm, his assis- tant is Bill Miller, a Univer- sity of Calgary student from Claresholm. The office is in the Smith Agencies building, telephone 235-3834. In Fort Macleod he has space in the Town Office, telephone 234-3043. When Jim is not there, the town office receptionist will take mes- sages for him. He says he generally spends Mondays in Pincher Creek, Tuesdays and Wed- nesdays in Fort Macleod and Thursdays and Fridays at Claresholm. He also works closely with LaMont Nielson, CMC for Students counsellor in Card- ston and Waterton, and Larry Knibbs, the counsellor in Taber. All of the regional centres work closely with Manpower in Lethbridge which is in charge of them. Jim Cameron, at work in Claresholm office Here's how to look for those jobs: Cardston have offices too High school classes are ended, and there you are, free to do whatever you want for two months. With exams fin- ished and some spare time, you may want to look for a summber job. It sounds easy, but if you have waited until July to go job-hunting you may be dis- appointed. You are facing keen competition this sum- mer from about other students high school, uni- versity and college all look- ing for summer work. The only ones who won't be competing with you will be those students who had their jobs lined up long before final exams loomed on the horizon. Where do you start? Begin with a visit to your Canada Manpower Centre for Stu- dents. Across Canada, 110 special CMCs for Student have been set up to help you and students like you to find summer jobs. The centres are manned by other students, who under- stand the problems you are facing because they've been there themselves. These stu- dent job counsellors will be out job-searching throughout the summer. In Lethbridge, the CMC for Students is at 424 7th St. S., telephone 328-9265. There are also a number of southern Al- berta regional offices, listed in a box on this page. What will you find at the Canada Manpower Centre? First, you'll be asked to reg- ister. Canada Manpower coun- sellors cannot help you find work, until they know where your interests lie and whether you have training or experi- ence in a particular area. Secondly, you will find in- formation. The federal gov- ernment is operating a num- ber of summer employment programs for students. Man- power student offices can sup- ply you with information about these programs and in some cases will refer you to employment related to them. The Alberta Ecology Corps and the Canadian militia re- serve are examples. Last year, about 713.000 of the students looking for work were employed in pri- vate businesses, and CMCs 'have contacted employers again this summer, encourag- ing them to provide jobs for students. Where else can you look for work? To increase your chances of finding work and don't forget the tough competition you are facing from every other student apply at a Canada Manpower Centre, then look for a sum- mer job yourself. Manpower officials say they will do their best to find you work, but they're looking for almost a million jobs: you by yourself will be concentrating on finding only one job. Use Manpower as one of several job sources. Begin with the people clos- est to you: parents, relatives, neighbors and friends. It's true, "knowing someone" helps. List everyone who might be helpful, then speak to the people on your list. Ask if their place of work hira students, and if so, who is in charge of hiring. Head the newspaper regu- larly, especially the "part time and seasonal help want- ed" columns. Don't be afraid to apply for several different jobs and expect many of them to be filled before you get there. Knack on doors. Employers prefer face-to-face meetings, and this is how the majority of people are hired. If you do not get an inter- view with your first visit, you may at least get an indica- tion of the potential for get- ting a job there. One important note: go alone. Do not take parents or friends, even if you feel the need for moral support. On the job, you'll be on your own. Before you head off for that all-important interview with a prospective employer, pre- pare a brief, one-page resume summarizing your qualifica- tions. Include your age and educa- tion, your working experience, licences you hold, and any hobbies or special qualifica- tions, such as equipment (of- fice, construction and so on) you can operate which would equip you for the job you're after. Give the employer as much Information about yourself as you can in as few words as you can one page maxi- mum. When you walk in the door for an interview, let your resume introduce you. Don't ask for a job: politely tell the interviewer, "I would like to offer you my ser- vices. Here is my resume (pronounced Don't be easily discouraged pays. There are many potential employers you can contact on your own, including tour- ist businesses, service indus- tries, recreation, construction, retail stores, agriculture any place which has extra work in the summer or needs substitutes for vacationing employees. And for Manpower, for per- sonnel managers in businesses where you have applied for ail potential employers, be certain at all times to be reachable by telephone, either at home or at a friend's. Waterton Lakes National Park must make a beautiful location for a summer and LaMont Nielson, a Canada Manpower Centre for Students regional development officer, agrees.
