Blueprint for the Future, Canada's largest Aboriginal career fair, will be held Oct. 26 at the University of Alberta. The event will bring hundreds of Aboriginal students from all over the province to Edmonton, delivering educational resources and giving students access to career professionals in government and corporate sectors. Suzette Amaya, entrepreneur, radio host, producer, events coordinator, and Aboriginal role model, will be hosting the career fair with musical entertainment provided by Aboriginal hip-hop star Joey Stylez. The fair consists of a specific set of modules containing hands-on activities and presentations to inform Aboriginal students of their post-secondary options and the diverse career paths in the Canadian job market. The goal of the fair is to keep students on track and in school for a more successful and happy future. BFF career fair is an event of the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation.
