COVID-19 has created challenges for businesses looking to recruit employees. With strict safe-gathering protocols in place, it can be difficult to meet with jobseekers in person, while maintaining the social distancing and sanitization processes needed. Drive-Thru Job Fairs offer a solution, providing a contactless adaptation of an on-site hiring event. Several companies attend at varying times to offer information on employment opportunities and conduct pre-screening of jobseekers who remain in their vehicles for the duration of the event. The YMCA Employment Centre and their partners manage all of the logistics for the event including securing a venue, set up/take down, sanitization, traffic flow, supplying event volunteers, and promoting the event to jobseekers.  
The previous Drive-Thru Job Fairs created the following results:

  • The first Drive-Thru Job Fair event featured one employer who conducted 220 one-on-one interviews with jobseekers at the two-day event. 75 of those jobseekers moved to the next phase of the recruitment process.
  • Six employers were featured in the second one-day Drive-Thru Job Fair. 50 jobseekers had an opportunity to meet with an employer face to face, and 32 candidates proceeded to the next phase of the recruitment process.

It’s a great idea for a recruitment event,” said a previous Drive-Thru Job Fair Employer participant, “It’s nice only seeing people that are truly interested in working for our Institution and eliminating the 'tire kicker's.

Our next Drive-Thru Job Fair on Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at the Cypress Centre Pavilion in Medicine Hat. Space is limited to the number of employers, so please CLICK HERE to apply by noon on Saturday, March 20, 2021.
