Career Opportunities

A few years back, when I was miserable at my dead-end job, I made the decision to try something different with my life. I applied to a small school downtown, gleefully quit my job, and took a chance at finding something to do with myself that would make me happy for once. 
 
A construction worker at Ice District in 2015.


It was one of the best decisions I ever made, and one that will have a lasting effect on whatever it is I do from now on. 

I’m lucky though, even being able to make that decision to quit my job and go back to school to find a better one, because not everybody has it so “easy.” But, we live in a city where opportunity is unlimited, surprisingly attainable, and just waiting for you to grab a hold of. 

For whatever sector you fancy - health care, construction, industrial, business, hospitality, the trades, entertainment - Edmonton’s the place to be! 
 
NAIT's motto, 'Essential to Alberta' is very much true!


Our unemployment rates are steadily well below the national average, our weekly salary pay is tops in the country, and Alberta’s minimum wage will soon be higher than any other province or territory in Canada! 

Even when it comes to training these workers, Edmonton is well equipped with the essential facilities for everything from plumbers to philosophers, providing the necessary tools for whatever your little heart desires. 

That could explain why Edmonton has been one of the fastest-growing metros in the country for many years now, as Canadians from coast to coast pack up and come to the land of opportunity for a better way of life. #yegjobs
