Job fair upcoming

  • Mar. 4, 2011 7:00 p.m.

Local employers and employees unite! That is the goal of the Career Development Centre’s upcoming job fair. Shirley Kricheldorf, program coordinator of the Community Futures Career Development Centre says the job fair used to be an annual event until they took a break, but now it’s back. The events are planned in two communities, Masset and Queen Charlotte for early April (April 6 in QC, April 7 in Masset). Right now they are looking for local businesses and organizations who want to have a table. The idea is to get employers and potential employees in one place, where information about the kinds of jobs available on the islands can be shared. Ms Kricheldorf says the fair is aimed at job seekers or anyone looking at a career change. It’s also an opportunity for local organizations to network with each other. Businesses hoping to participate can register by contacting Laurie Chisholm at the Queen Charlotte Career Development Centre at 250 559-7731
