Fernie Alpine Resort’s (FAR) day lodge was all a buzz over the weekend. FAR held a job fair for their 2013/14-winter season on Oct. 18 to 20 interviewing potential employees. Catering to the youthful social media savee, FAR accepted two to three-minute video applications through YouTube and Vimeo from applicants who could not be present. With an enticing invitation like “Want to work at Fernie Alpine Resort this winter and experience a Legendary Winter?” who wouldn’t want to apply?

About 200 people participated in the group interviews. One man drove all night from the interior of B.C. to make it to his Saturday interview.

“Almost all of the applicants seemed to be from other countries,” said Roxanne Beaton executive assistant.

“We’re hiring for outgoing and friendly staff. We can teach a skill but not a personality. Last winter was a standout for customer service as we had so much positive feedback from our guests.”

Last year was FAR’s first time using the group style interview; with so much positive feedback they kept it for this winter season’s hiring.
