5 reasons your career search just got easier

Black Press Education and Career Fair comes to Comox Feb. 7

If you’re in the market for a job change, or are charting your education path with an eye to a future career, you’re in luck: Black Press brings the resources you need to the 19 Wing CFB Comox, Lazo Main (Rec Centre Building) Feb. 7.

From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Black Press Extreme Education & Career Fair will showcase a full array of career and education opportunities.

“The number and diversity of participating organizations speaks to the necessity of Career Fairs in today’s job market space and Black Press is happy to host an event that matches job seekers with employers,” says Sheri Jackson, Black Press Media’s events manager.

“We really bring together so much opportunity under one roof – when it comes time to seek employment or education, people can see so many options in one place,” Jackson says. “We also have a wide range of employers ready to hire, and they find it a valuable experience to meet potential employees who would be a great fit for their company.”

  1. So much to explore: One of 10 Black Press career fairs hosted around the province, from Vancouver Island to the Kootenays, discover more than 40 booths filled with representatives from post-secondary institutions such as Discovery Community College, VIU, Excel Career College and more, businesses of all sizes – Mowi, RLR Lawyers, Canadian Tire, many Work BC locations and Winners – and so much more!
  2. So much to learn: A career fair is an educational experience all on its own, with on-the-spot interviews, and applications to fill out all while honing your people skills with speaking directly to the employers looking to hire.
  3. Building connections: In a province with an already low unemployment rate, B.C.’s Labour Market Outlook anticipates more than 900,000 job openings over the next decade, three-quarters of which will require some post-secondary education or training. With education and employers together under one roof, prospective job-seekers will find the resources they need to make their career dreams a reality.
  4. Employer resources: With those kind of numbers, the Black Press career fairs are just as vital for employers – a place they can focus on the potential job seekers, see how many people are searching for employment in their field, and conduct on-the-spot interviews. In addition the fair also features a speaker series for exhibitors, this time with BC Transit and McDonalds speaking about employee retention and the day to day challenges and opportunities of recruitment.
  5. It’s free! The education and career fair is free and open to the public, with ample parking onsite at the 19 Wing CFB Comox, Lazo Main (Rec Centre Building).
