North Island College’s 10th-annual Career Fair returns April 1, 2020 to the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay. The event runs from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Admission is free and all are welcome to attend.

Tenth annual North Island College Career Fair coming to the Comox Valley

North Island College’s annual Career Fair returns April 1 to Courtenay’s Florence Filberg Centre, marking 10 years of connecting qualified job seekers with employers.

More than 35 employers from across the region are expected to attend this year’s event, including lead sponsors Cermaq Canada and supporting sponsor WorkBC Centre Courtenay.

Cermaq’s people and culture director Shannan Brown said NIC is “a strong community partner,” adding the company is excited to return as an exhibitor at the Career Fair.

“We have successfully recruited many NIC students to work in a variety of roles,” said Brown. “We look forward to seeing everyone and please stop by and say hello at our booth.”

The Career Fair brings together a diverse group of employers across various sectors of the economy, including aquaculture, food and beverage, tourism, hospitality, business and professional services.

By meeting under one roof, employers gain access to a wide pool of qualified potential candidates and job seekers get the chance to network with employers and even hand out copies of their résumé.

The Career Fair’s long track record of success stands out in an era of online applications and job seeking, said Alex Bowman, NIC Student Employment Services advisor and Career Fair organizer.

“The event helps job seekers secure meaningful employment and we encourage everyone to attend,” said Bowman. “This year is special as we’re celebrating our 10th anniversary, so don’t miss out. People have even been hired on the spot.”

“For those who can’t make it this year, employers can also post opportunities on our online job board, CareerCentral,” added Bowman.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the event, NIC Student Employment Services will be handing out 10 special prizes throughout the day.

As always, the event is free and runs from 11 am to 3 pm at the Filberg Centre. All are welcome.

A shuttle service between NIC’s Comox Valley campus and the Filberg Centre will run every half hour starting at 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The bus will pick up and drop off from the Comox Valley campus bus loop.
