Jobs fair working its way to town

B.C. Jobs Start Here will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 28, at the Vernon Recreation Complex.

A province-wide job fair will make a stop in Vernon.

Dubbed B.C. Jobs Start Here, the job fair will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 28, at the Vernon Recreation Complex.

The job fairs connect job seekers face-to-face with local employers and provide access to information on job opportunities, career trends, skills training and more.

The fair is one of 23 being held in communities around B.C. between now and March 28.

Exhibitors at each fair include a range of employers, post-secondary institutions, industry associations and training authorities.

Visitors can also browse the BC Jobs Plan and WorkBC websites using iPads at the B.C Jobs Start Here mobile exhibit.

In addition, a new Skills4BC booth will be on-site with staff to answer questions and share information on skills training in B.C.

The B.C. Jobs Start Here Job Fairs are organized as part of Canada Starts Here: the B.C. Jobs Plan, the province’s strategy for economic growth and job creation. The jobs fairs are a continuation of the 24 fairs that took place around B.C. last fall.
