Another fall, another job fair

The Elk Valley Employment Centre is hosting its annual Community Job Fair on Thursday, October 25 at the Fernie Community Centre.

It’s that time of year again; the Elk Valley Employment Centre is hosting its annual Community Job Fair on Thursday, October 25, from noon to 5 p.m. Held at the Fernie Community Centre, the event will give both job seekers and employers the chance to find what they need to make it through the upcoming winter season.

“The job fair will be a great venue for job seekers to learn about seasonal and year round job opportunities in the area, and for employers to recruit and connect with job seekers,” commented Amy Bockner, Business Services Coordinator for the Elk Valley Employment Centre.

From trades and tourism, to hotels and recreation, employers from all over the Elk Valley will be in attendance. The job fair is held in the fall of each year to line up with the influx of people who come to town just for the snow season. Bockner explained, “Once October rolls around we start to see lots of new folks in the Valley here to enjoy everything it has to offer, and businesses starting to start looking for people to help them gear up for the busy season.”

She added, “ We have started to see lots of new faces in town coming by wanting to learn about what great places there are to work, and how they can find employment.”

The Elk Valley Employment Centre will be offering assistance with resume writing and self marketing to job seekers looking for help preparing for the fair at their office in downtown Fernie, as well as at their self-serve kiosk in Sparwood. Employer space is still available but must be reserved in advance. For registration details, or more information, contact the Employment Centre at 250-423-4204.
