Due to the downturn in the oil industry we are now offering expedited resume writing services for those Edmonton and Ft. McMurray job-seekers in the oil and oil services industries.
Q: How is the downturn affecting Edmonton?
A: On paper, you have the unemployment rate sitting at about 6.9 per cent in Edmonton, which is really strong compared to the rest of the province … But when you really start to dissect the numbers you realize that about 23,000 people have left the employment base here, which is artificially keeping our (un)employment numbers low.
Q: What do you see happening in 2017?
A: I actually see it being one of the toughest years in Edmonton’s history. I thought 2016 was going to be exceptionally tough, but I thought we withstood that better than expected. In 2017, we’re probably going to get a little bit of that anxiety in the first quarter as the unemployment figures start to creep up. You have extended EI benefits starting to come off, you have severances starting to come off … You see an escalation in the unemployment rate that may create a little bit of hysteria on consumer confidence and business confidence in the first quarter. I think that’s probably my No. 1 concern.

Despite the decline in oil and gas, Edmonton, Alberta has significant career opportunities because of economic diversification. Industries range from tourism to financial services, government, and retail. Edmonton was judged by the Financial Times publication, fDi magazine, to have the "best economic potential" of any North American city in the 500,000 to 2,000,000 population category" (Source). There are significant employment opportunities in Edmonton, especially in the financial and government sectors. There are still significant opportunities in surrounding areas like Ft. McMurray, especially in the petrochemical industry, although it has become much more competitive with the decline in oil prices.
We can write and customize cover letters and resumes for a very wide variety of careers. We have written material for everyone from tradespeople and academics to recent graduates and police officers. Give us a call at 1.587.988.1886.Sample Resumes Resume Prices Contacts
