An annual event hosted by Career & Co-op Services at the University of Lethbridge to create and build relationships between employers, students and graduates. Career & Employment Services is the primary organizer of the event.

Each year, we purchase artwork from a student for the production of a limited edition Career Fair print. We strive to support and raise the profile of young artists on campus many of whom are First Nations, Metis or Inuit. These prints grace the offices and boardrooms of businesses who have participated in past career fairs. Pictured below with her painting, 'Fancy Dancer' is Maria Livingston, this year's artist.
Maria Livingston is a member of the Bigstone Cree Nation in Northern Alberta. She became a new mother in January 2012 and just finished her 3rd year at University of Lethbridge as a Native American Studies major. She first learnt hoop dancing from J.J. First Charger in 2006, and has done numerous performances since then; mainly in Southern Alberta. She also does beadwork, painting, sewing, and fish scale art.
The piece “Fancy Dancer” is originally from a set of three paintings, the other two are paintings of a traditional dancer and a jingle dress dancer. Maria looked to strong native women who paved the path for her success when she was in need of motivation. Her family members, community members and native women activists helped Maria keep moving forward when she was struggling in her own life. This painting shows her appreciation for these women and also her love for native dancing.
