Employers and job-seekers are invited to one of the Okanagan’s biggest job fairs next month in Penticton.
The Start Here Okanagan Job Fair will take place at the Penticton Trade & Convention Centre on March 12, bringing together hundreds of job-seekers with a diverse range of employers seeking both entry-level and experienced employees.
The trade show-style event will be the largest of its kind throughout the region, according to the City of Penticton’s economic development department,
The event was created in part to help employers struggling with recruitment, said the city’s economic development specialist, Andrew Kemp.
“In today’s tight labour market, local businesses are telling us that recruitment is becoming an increasing challenge,” said Kemp. “Our forthcoming job fair is a practical solution that will connect employers with individuals seeking employment or new opportunities.
“We encourage businesses and job-seekers to join us on March 12 to find that next great hire or position.”
Job-seekers are asked – but not required – to register for their free tickets here to give organizers and employers a better understanding of their audience.
Registration information for employers can be found here. There are still spots available for employers to book for the job fair.
