Selkirk College will focus on making key connections Thursday (February 27) at the Career and Education Fair on the Castlegar Campus.

The annual event will bring together employers, students and Selkirk College programs for a day of exploration.

There will be plenty of opportunity for those looking for a dream career to survey options, and a chance for area businesses to touch base with future employers. Selkirk College programs will be on display to help connect the dots.

“This is a prime opportunity for employers to promote their organization, increase awareness, provide information about opportunities within their organization and meet potential qualified candidates,” said Selkirk College Educational Recruitment Specialist Amy Byers.

There will be more than 30 exhibitors ranging from Alberta Health Services to AM Ford Sales to Teck Metals (see full list below).

The fair has been taking place at Selkirk College since 2006. It’s geared toward current and graduating Selkirk College students looking for opportunities to put their education to work. Another important target audience is high school students and those eyeing a career change who want to delve deeper into education options.

The Selkirk College Career and Education Fair takes place in The Pit on the Castlegar Campus on Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Everyone is welcome.
