Business expo offers career opportunities

The fourth annual Okanagan College Business Expo & Employment Fair will feature more than 45 employers, many of which are hiring for a variety of opportunities in the Okanagan Valley and beyond.

The Business Expo & Employment Fair will be held at the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College in the atrium of the Centre of Learning Building on Wednesday, Feb. 2, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event will give participants the opportunity to speak with employers regarding career opportunities.

While the event will take place in Kelowna, organizer Jamie Morrow wants people to know there are a number of regional and national companies looking for staff throughout the province.

“We have got four national banks recruiting at this event as well as a number of multinational organizations and we want to let people know there are opportunities for people across the region,” explained Morrow.

“This event provides an excellent opportunity for anyone considering a new career or employment in the Okanagan.

“By bringing industry experts together with those seeking jobs and careers we are able to offer a direct line of communication and networking for job seekers.

“This fair is focused on providing people with career options and valuable information to help them find the job they want.”

A host of employers will be on-site with information booths set up to support job seekers.

The City of Kelowna, Tolko Industries Ltd., Factors Group of Nutritional Products Inc., CIBC and URBANSYSTEMS are just a few of the 45 participating employers.
