With the 2014 RRC Career Fair about to get underway and with our Winter Convocation occurring next week, we thought it was a good time to point out some great RRC job search resources.
RRC Student Employment Services
This has to be your first stop in your job search! Student Employment Services provides a full range of employment services and supports targeted at RRC students, recent graduates, and employers. If you are not aware of what RRC Student Employment Services can do for you, then you should definitely get familiar!

Student Employment Services posts employment opportunities exclusively for Red River College students and alumni on jobcentral.rrc.ca. To register as an RRC student on Job Central log on to jobcentral.rrc.ca and follow the instructions.
RRC’s Student Employment Services also provides a link between businesses and their future employees found in the College’s student body through job postings and job alerts, on-campus presentations and recruitment initiatives.
Would you like to know more about these opportunities? Student Employment Services has offices at both the Notre Dame Campus and also at the Exchange District Campus. (Look here: http://www.rrc.ca/employmentservices/)
RRC Career Fair: 29-30 Jan 14
Presented by the RRC Students’ Association, the Career Fair is not to be missed! This year it is being held at the Notre Dame Campus on 29-30 January from 9am-2pm.
Some helpful tips for the career fair: Bring your resume, ask lots of questions, look presentable and take your time.
Also, you should be aware that there are different employers on each day, so you might want to attend both days. Just check out the list of employers to map out your plan: http://rrcsa.ca/career-fair-2014/
We have many great resources in our collection, including this video series available online!
The Red River College Library maintains many “Job Search” resources in our collection.
A particularly useful group of items may be the videos in the “Complete Job Search System” series. These are available to current RRC students both on DVD and via streaming video.
Check out the list of titles below.
