Have you ever looked at your bank account and thought "Where does all my money go?"

Or have you ever felt like you just don't have enough money at the end of the month?

Sometimes there are points in our lives when it feels like we just don't have enough. We can try to do all the right things like open up a savings account, or use a budgeting app, or even write down all our expenses, but we still feel like we don't have enough at the end of the month.

Or maybe there have been a some challenges in your life. You might have been laid off, you might have gotten really sick, or some unforeseen expenses have come up.

How can you budget what you have already to get the most out of your money?

Chantal Kuzma, Stakeholder Relations Coordinator at Money Mentors, will not only help you create a realistic spending plan, but will help you stick to it as well. By creating an effective budget and understanding where your money is going, you'll be able to save for your financial future. You will learn the difference between needs and wants, why you should set goals, how to track spending, tricks to control wasted dollars, and how to live comfortably within your means. Lastly, you will learn how to obtain and read your credit report, as well as understand the difference between credit rating and credit score. With 'Budgeting Basics’, you'll have less stress, more balance, and a lot more freedom. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: People who have ever thought "where does all my money go?" People who need to make a budget. People who want to be better with their money and make better decisions.

HOT TOPIC HOUR: That Applicant Tracking System

Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Location: Room S2010, Bow Valley College 345-6 Ave SE, South Campus

REGISTRATION LINK: http://bit.ly/ThatATS

Get an HR professional's take on the Applicant Tracking System after you send in your resume.

The Applicant Tracking System (ATS) is like gravity - people know what it is but few people truly understand how it works.

Essentially, an ATS is a software application that enables the electronic handling of recruitment needs and can be implemented or accessed online at enterprise- or small-business levels, depending on the needs of the organization; free and open-source ATS software is also available.

Or most job seekers will know ATS as...

"That stupid computer system that always throws out my resume and doesn't get it in front of the hiring manager!"

How can you get your resume to 'pass' the ATS?

How can you 'beat the system?'

What can you do to have the best chances to have the hiring person see your resume?

But really, it's not bad.

Join us as Sharon Blaskovits, Senior HR Advisor at Husky Energy, will be talking to us about the ATS and trying to debunk some of the myths and stereotypes that we have about its role in our application process.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: People who want to understand the ATS better, people who apply to companies with ATS or mostly to large companies,
