Job fair next week

  • Feb. 27, 2014 11:00 a.m.

The Skidegate job fair next Friday (March 7) will be a one- stop shop where job hunters can meet prospective employers, listen to guest speakers and get help with their resume.The event, hosted by the Skidegate Education Department, Gwaalaga Naay Corporation, Haida Gwaii Literacy and Hecate Strait Employment Development Society, will bring more than 21 south end and Sandspit employers to the Skidegate small hall from 2 to 7 pm, according to Terri Penner of Queen Charlotte HSEDS.There will also be one person attending from off- island. A representative from the Centre for Arts and Technology Kelowna will be on site to talk about the courses it offers in film making, computer graphics, video game programming and more.”Those attending can bring a resume if they’ve got one, and should have some questions ready for employers. Let’s say they go to the radiologist table, they’re going to want to ask, ‘How can I get into this field?’ and What kind of training do I need?'” said Ms Penner.She also said HSEDS and Haida Gwaii Literacy will be there to review resumes, help write resumes and, if people bring their resume on a memory stick, they can print them.Attendees can also participate in a speaker’s corner where they’ll hear professionals present information about their field of work. Organizers are in need of someone from the trades sector, currently employed or retired, to speak for part of the fair.Those who have questions or are interested in speaking can contact Terri Penner at HSEDS at 559-0049
