Current Selkirk College students and prospective students can get a leg-up at the annual Career & Education Fair which takes place on the Castlegar Campus on Thursday (March 5) between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Selkirk College Career Fair Provides an Edge for Students

The annual Selkirk College Career & Education Fair brings together more than 50 exhibitors.

CASTLEGAR – Proper planning is vital to success in a new career and Selkirk College is providing the opportunity to explore options this Thursday at the Castlegar Campus.

The annual Selkirk College Career & Education Fair brings together more than 50 exhibitors with community members, students, prospective students and parents for a day of building connections and providing insight into the available avenues for in-demand jobs.

“This fair is for everyone,” says Selkirk College Recruitment Specialist Amy Byers. “Businesses are actively recruiting for a variety of positions within their organization. Job seekers get the unique opportunity to meet and connect with employers prior to submitting their resume which can really give them an edge.”

Current Selkirk College and high school students have much to gain by attending the fair which runs between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. in The Pit on the Castlegar Campus.

“Students looking for summer work-terms will benefit from the fair as a number of employers have summer positions posted,” says Byers.

One of the focuses of the provincial government’s strategy for post-secondary education over the last few years has been the need for qualified tradespeople. Those interested in opportunities in the trades can gather more information at the Career & Education Fair.

“With the release of the BC Skills for Jobs Blueprint and the expected increase in demand for skilled tradespeople, a variety of trades organizations and employers will be providing information on training and career options so those currently looking for job openings or planning a career in the trades can get a jump start now,” says Byers.

High school students, parents and all prospective post-secondary students will also benefit from the fair with Selkirk College representatives set up to help answer questions about programs, admissions and financial aid opportunities.

The Career & Education Fair is free to attend. For a full list of exhibitors and more information on the event go to: selkirk.ca/future-students/career-and-education-fair.
