Clearwater and District Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the North Thompson Job Fair and Trade Show for students and public on Thursday, April 26, from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. at the Clearwater Secondary School gym.
This Job Fair and Tradeshow is being held in cooperation with Clearwater Employment Services and District of Clearwater. It will give employers and employment seekers a local perspective on the labour market.
The local aspect is relevant, as invitations have been sent to employers from McBride to Ashcroft. Exhibitors interested in participating can download the exhibitor application form from the District of Clearwater website and return it to the Community Resource Centre.
Jeff Lamond, president of the Chamber, said the location of the event at CSS is intended to provide students with a better opportunity to attend so they can develop some insights into career opportunities. With these goals in mind, they can then develop learning plans to assist them along the right path.
Jocelyn Ansel from CES indicated there would be wage subsidy and other information under the new WorkBC Program (www.workbc.ca) for interested employers. CES staff will have the forms at their booth for employers to apply for this program.
Industry suppliers are already returning applications for booth space. Yellowhead Mines and Canfor are two of the big local companies planning to attend along with the Chamber, the District of Clearwater, Clearwater Employment Services and others.
Admission is free! Refreshments for the event will be sponsored by District of Clearwater.
