The City of Winnipeg held its first ever job fair to target potential staff for the city's current and future recruitment needs.

The free, day-long carer symposium, held on Nov. 30, showcased the types of jobs available in all of the city's departments.

A "speaker's corner" featured 13 city staff, including the chief of policy and a city entomologist, who talked about their unique career paths.

Employees from a variety of areas were also on site to share information and answer questions about their professions and occupations.

Representatives from the following city departments were on hand:

•Water and Waste

•Public Works

•Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service

•311

•Corporate Support Services

•Winnipeg Transit

•Winnipeg Police Service
