Want a Job? Come to Beautiful British Columbia!

OK....I know this sounds like a previous post, but I just had to include this.

British Columbia ( Vancouver/Whistler ) is going to host the 2010 Winter Olympics. And the governments are dumping money into building roads and facilities. The problem is that British Columbia's Neighbor, Alberta, is going through an economic boom and is pulling in all the skilled labour.

I recently listened to a radio interview with an official with the Olympic construction committee. They not only have buildings to put up, but also all the infrastructure such as roads and transit lines.

He was asked just how bad the problem was and he said, "We are even stopping people on the highway and asking them if they want a job."

Now that was a shocker!!!

He went on to add that they were looking for tradespeople, laborers, and managers. Pretty well every position imaginable. So Western Canada is booming! And if you are in the mood for a party, there is no better place than Vancouver. They don't call this Beautiful BC for nothing. Check out the Provincial Website. And the Vancouver Tourism Website. And for a reality check, you might like to look at the House Prices

Happy Hunting!
