Global Talent Conference 2017

MARCH 1, 2017

The Global Talent Conference is known as one of Edmonton’s premium events for Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs) who are looking to connect with and be inspired by leaders from the Edmonton business community.

For the seventh year, Edmonton Region Immigrant Employment Council (ERIEC) will hold its 2017 Global Talent Conference on March 1, 2017 at the Fantasyland Hotel & Conference Centre at West Edmonton Mall.

What are employers looking for in your job interview? How can you tell them about yourself in a way that you leave them with a positive impression? This day-long conference will review the keys to being a good communicator: how to take control of your story and represent yourself with confidence. You’ll learn the elements of persuasive story and tips for communicating it in powerful and memorable way.

We believe that developing a set of skills to manage change in difficult times for economy is essential to employment and integration of IEPs. That is why this year’s Conference theme is Communicating with Confidence: Making your story powerful!

The Edmonton Global Talent Conference is a cost free, one-day event.

Qualified participants are Internationally Educated Professionals, Permanent Residents or Canadian Citizens, are unemployed or underemployed, have good communication skills and are currently looking for employment.
