Okanagan College’s annual Business Expo & Employment Fair returns

The fair will celebrate it’s 12th year running Feb. 6

Okanagan College’s popular Business Expo & Employment Fair is back for its twelfth year, once again connecting students and community members with an abundance of local, provincial and national employment opportunities.

The Okanagan College School of Business and OC’s Student, Graduate and Co-op Employment Centre is presenting the Business Expo & Employment Fair on Wednesday, Feb. 6. The event is happening in the Centre for Learning Atrium at the Kelowna campus from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“This event is for everyone from all different industries – not just business – and would appeal to anyone living in the Okanagan region” said Jamie Morrow, Okanagan School of Business program and event coordinator.

“It’s meant to connect those looking for work with those who do the direct hiring for their companies. Sometimes being in front of the right people at the right time is the edge you need in such a competitive job market.”

Participants will have the opportunity to network with more than 60 local, provincial and national employers and even apply for positions as many exhibitors are hiring.

“We are always looking for individuals for our Member Service Advisor and Contact Centre Agent roles,” said Erika Nisbet, Human Resources consultant with Interior Savings. “We also hire students for teller roles as part of our co-op program. Students receive training during the summer months and then have the opportunity to work shifts that fit their schedule.”

Interior Savings, along with many other B.C. companies have attended the Business Expo consistently for years.

“We’ve been attending for the past eight years,” said Nisbet. “We go to hire, to educate participants about career opportunities that Interior Savings has to offer and to let people know about our organization and all we do in the communities we serve.”

Exhibitors from multiple industries – including municipalities, wine, law enforcement, hospitality, finance, construction, technologies, retail and more – will be present, ensuring there is something for everyone.
