The Parksville Career Centre wants people to “experience the magic” of its annual hiring fair this year.
The hiring fair has been a success, according to the Career Centre, with last year’s attendance reaching 600 job seekers. The fair will run Thursday (April 12) from noon to 4 p.m. at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre.
Staff anticipate a great turn-out with 53 employers participating. Island Health will kick off the day with a session from 10-11:30 a.m. for anyone interested in employment in the health field.
The theme this year is “Experience the Magic.”
“It is so gratifying to witness the connections being made at this event which allows unique one-on-one interaction between employers and job seekers.” said Lori Koop, manager of marketing for the Career Centre. “That’s when the magic happens. I say it every year; it’s my hiring fair mantra.”
Cheryl Dill, Career Centre executive director, said, “Dress appropriately for the occasion, bring copies of your updated resume and be prepared to impress your next potential employer.”
