‘Possibilities are endless’ at Black Press digital career fair

Black Press Digital Career and Education Fair begins now

A two-week Black Press Media digital career fair begins next week and the province’s top employers are hiring.

The fair is an opportunity for job seekers to consider all options whether it be a post secondary education or a job change, explained Jennifer Wood, an organizer of the fair.

“Employers are ready to hire, and they find it a valuable experience to digitally have the chance to meet potential employees who would be a great fit for their company,” she said.

Whether you’re looking to switch careers or simply take on something new, the Black Press Digital Career and Education Fair starting now can help you take that next step.

“The possibilities are endless,” Wood noted.

The career fair will host representatives from post-secondary institutions such as Sprott Shaw College, Kwantlen Polytechnic University and Think Tank Training Centre as well as businesses of all sizes such as BC Corrections, Milieu, Agri-Trans Services and the Nurse Next Door to name a few.

“We have many returning vendors such as BC Corrections, Agri-Trans Services, Milieu, Vancouver Police Department, and more that find great success in previous events,” Wood said.

“It allows them to connect with qualified candidates and hire for their growing needs right at their fingertips,” she added.

Those who go online will have the opportunity to either apply directly with employers or to inquire about programs at post secondary education institutes.

Applicants are recommended to prepare a resume so they can post it and get hired, Wood said.
