Due to high turn-over rates and a transient community, Yellowknife is a land of opportunity when it comes to employment opportunities. It is not uncommon for spouses to apply and gain employment in a field they are not trained or qualified for. Employers often provide all the training needed. Yellowknife is also a great place to start a new career or try something new. Patience is key, as the hiring process seems to take longer in Yellowknife.
