Career fair moves to new venue

The North Island College Career Fair moves to a new venue at the Comox Recreation Centre March 11.

The fifth annual North Island College Career Fair moves to a new venue at the Comox Recreation Centre March 11 to accommodate one of the North Island’s biggest events for employers and job seekers.

“Almost every employer is hiring now and expects to choose people to interview at the fair,” says Treena Nadon, NIC’s employment advisor. “This is the perfect opportunity to meet hiring personnel, ask questions and make a great first impression.”

The fair connects 50 employers from trades, tourism, health, accounting, education and government sectors with hundreds of students and community members looking for work.

Employers to date include the Four Seasons Whistler, the Canadian Armed Forces, Island Health, St. Joseph’s General Hospital, Pateman, Cloutier & Matthews Chartered Accountants, the City of Courtenay and the BC Construction Association.

The event is nearly sold out. Three spots remain for employers and community organizations still interested in attending.

“I hired an executive assistant from an NIC Career Fair who worked out really well,” said Lance Pace of OmniCare for People.

The free event runs from 1 to 4:30 p.m.

More information is available at www.nic.bc.ca. To connect with an employment advisor or to find out how your company can participate, email employment.resources@nic.bc.ca.
