The 15th annual Business Expo and Employment Fair is returning to Okanagan College on Feb. 1.
The free event is presented by the college’s school of business, trades program and employment centre.
It is open to anyone who finds themselves on the job hunt or anyone who’s wondering about the educational pathway to kickstart a career change.
“Events like these represent an incredible opportunity not only for our students and alumni from all across the region, but for our surrounding communities as well,” said Okanagan College President Neil Fassina.
“The growth of this event reflects our strong connections to industry and community at OC, as we work to train the skilled workers needed in so many sectors around us. We are so proud to be able to bring people together and create these kinds of transformative education and career development opportunities at Okanagan College.”
The job fair is expected to be the largest yet, connecting students and community members with employers from around the Okanagan and across Canada. There are more than 100 exhibitors taking part.
“The response from the business community, locally and from afar, has been tremendous,” said Jamie Morrow with the OC School of Business.
Participants should expect to meet people from industries including municipalities, law enforcement, wine, hospitality, finance, construction, technology, retail and more.
The event will take place Feb. 1, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. in the Centre for Learning Atrium (Building E) and in the Trades Atrium (Building T) at the Kelowna campus.
