Employee to employer in a year

Photograph of ColtonColton accompanied his cousin to an Employer Connection (hiring event) at the local Alberta Works Centre. Colton wasn’t looking for a job, he was just curious about the event, but he left with a new job as a Banquet Server with Aramark. Colton hadn’t planned on getting into the food services industry, but after listening to the presentation he decided to give it a try.

He was quickly promoted to Banquet Captain and then Catering Sales Manager. Today, Colton is responsible for catering large events, including weddings, meetings and job fairs.

Coincidently, when Aramark held another hiring event at the Alberta Works Centre, it was Colton doing the recruiting. Colton described being back as a recruiter as “surreal”, because he was the one getting interviewed only a year ago.

Colton loves his career and lets everyone know about Alberta Works employment services.
