The world’s best internet marketers live on: The best places to find and train for them
Edmonton has some of the best internet marketing talent in the country, but the city has also some of Canada’s most expensive housing costs.
So why aren’t more people in the city getting jobs?
The answer is simple: it’s expensive.
Edmonton, the capital of Alberta, has a median income of $80,000, but that’s not the highest in Canada, according to the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA).
The average city salary is $57,400.
And while the city’s median household income is $53,600, that’s more than $40,000 above the national median.
It’s not all that surprising that people in Edmonton are having a hard time finding work.
According to the Canada Labour Force Survey, the city had the second-highest unemployment rate in the nation in February of 2017 at 7.6%.
According to Statistics Canada, Alberta’s unemployment rate is 5.6%, while Edmonton’s is 4.8%.
While some of Edmonton’s job opportunities are relatively easy to find, such as in oil and gas or construction, there are a few that are more difficult to find.
For example, if you’re interested in working as a marketing consultant, there is a shortage of people in that field, according a 2016 report by the Canadian Association of Professional Accountants.
There are many other reasons why Edmonton’s unemployment rates are so high.
One of the most common is the city is not an easy place to start.
According a 2015 study by University of Calgary economist David Madani, Edmonton had the highest unemployment rate for new graduates in the province at 15.7%.
Another study by the University of Alberta economist, Jason Mercer, found that the province’s unemployment problem has been exacerbated by the province being a “labour market that is highly educated, highly skilled, and highly competitive.”
And it’s not just Edmonton.
Other cities in Alberta, like Calgary and Edmonton, have similar unemployment rates.
In fact, the University the University at Buffalo found that a study from the University’s Institute of Economic Studies showed that, of the top 25 cities in Canada for unemployment, 13 of them are in Alberta.
So if you think you might be better suited for a career in the oil and mining industry, you’re probably wrong.
The real question is, do you want to spend all of your time working for a company that pays a lot more than your salary?
If so, the Edmonton area may be a good place to consider.
Edwin Smith, president and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, says the real challenge for the city lies in finding a “culture of innovation” in the workplace.
It’s a process that will take a lot of time, said Smith, who was previously CEO of Rogers Communications.
“It’s the challenge of changing a culture that’s very entrenched, and very hard to change,” said Smith.
“You’re going to have to have a very good, well-organized team, and you’re going the extra mile.
You have to get to the point where there’s a level of knowledge and a good system of working that is very different from the culture that you’re trying to get people to adopt.”
Edmonton’s housing costs, which are estimated at $10,500 per person, make it hard to find the best jobs in the area, even for those who are able to afford to live here.
It took me more than two years of working as an agent and marketing consultant to find a job in Edmonton, but I finally landed a job doing consulting work, Smith said.
He said if you want a good job in the industry, “you can’t just hop on a plane and get to Calgary.
You’re going have to go to Edmonton and work for a couple of years, or for a little bit, in order to get the best deal.”
Smith said there are more than 150 companies in the Edmonton region that are looking for a talent pool to recruit from, which is why he’s encouraged other businesses in the region to get in touch with him.
“We need to find more jobs.
There are more opportunities for people to work in the field that are going to be available to us,” saidSmith.
“I’m hoping to see a lot greater diversity in Edmonton and more people working in the tech sector in particular.
And it’s just the right thing to do.”
