COVID-19 Update: Event Postponed Until Further Notice.
The goal of this project was to develop a magazine issue based off of the UN 17 Sustainable development goals. I chose goal #8 “Decent Work and Economic Growth” for my feature article. I started by compiling as much desk research as I could in order to understand how this goal is represented in Calgary. I interviewed Denise Peori-Chaisson who works aiding people in finding employment in the city. She was able to provide me with many insights and other resources. I landed on the topic “Are people blocking themselves from finding work in Calgary” . This topic looks into the ways many people apply for jobs and discusses how you apply for jobs can play a major role when you are searching for employment.
