EK Employment to host community job fair

Those looking for work and those looking for workers will have a chance to meet at EK Employment's job fair on Oct. 23.

Job seekers and employers will be given the chance to meet at EK Employment’s job fair, set for Oct. 23. The job fair allows for face-to-face interaction along with the opportunity for employers to meet potential employees and to create personal connections.

“The Job Fair is one of our favourite events of the year. Last year’s job fair saw 27 employers needing to fill hundreds of positions and roughly 300 job seekers were in attendance,” said Amy Boeckner, Business Services Coordinator for EK Employment in a press release.

All job seekers are invited to attend and no pre-registration is required.  They are also encouraged to visit EK Employment offices to update their resumes or get help with interviewing skills. Employers must reserve their space at the fair in advances, with registration forms available on EK Employment’s website, EKemployment.org. Information can also be found on EK Employment’s Facebook page.

The Elk Valley Job Fair will be held at the Fernie Community Center on Oct. 23 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
