“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.
