North Island College career fair today

Dress for success, bring your resume and cover letter and be prepared for possible on-the-spot interviews when you attend one of North Island College’s career fair this Friday at the Comox Valley Campus.

Students, graduates, alumni and community members can attend career fairs at North Island College (NIC)’s Comox Valley and Campbell River campuses this month and discover a wide range of career opportunities, vocations and educational options.

The career fairs help promote post-secondary education, lifelong learning and career and professional development, explained Treena Nadon, NIC’s employment service advisor.

“Events like these career fairs create a bridge for students seeking work — connecting them with employers who are hiring,” she said. “They are a very efficient way for students to network, see what is available to them within our community and gain industry contacts.”

The employers attending NIC’s career fairs include: Fastenal, Vancouver Island Real Estate Board, Campbell River District Association for Community Living, St. Joseph’s General Hospital, Service Canada, World Financial Group, Future Focus Program Services, Comox Valley Kayaks and Canoes, Horne Lake Caves, the City of Courtenay, the City of Campbell River, Industrial Surface Technologies, Sealand Aviation, Bill Howich Chrysler, Comox Valley Regional District, Investor’s Group, Canadian Scottish Regiment Reserves, Home Depot, College Pro, PepsiCo Foods Canada, BC Assessment and more.

The Comox Valley Career Fair will be held today in the new Trades Training Centre at NIC’s Courtenay campus.

The Campbell River Career Fair will be held March 25 in the cafeteria at the Dogwood Street campus.

These events are free to attend and are open to the public, and they will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at each location.
