Register now! Virtual Career and Education EXPO/ Job Fair- Feb 24th, 2022

 


Exhibitor registration is now open for this VIRTUAL Career and Education EXPO/ Job Fair that will be live on Thursday, February 24th, 2022 from 9:30am to 3:30pm.

If you have previously registered for the “in person” 2021 event that was cancelled due to public health restrictions, you do not need to register again and event information has been emailed to you.

Exhibitors will be provided with a FREE virtual booth that you can customize to engage with students and job seekers from across the region spanning from Valleyview, Fox Creek, Swan Hills, Whitecourt, Mayerthorpe, Sangudo, Onoway, and Barrhead.

Sponsor's will receive a virtual 3D booth that will be showcased upon attendee entrance into the exhibitor hall and all exhibitors will have the opportunity to purchase a 3D booth if they are interested.

This Career and Education EXPO is a great opportunity to recruit local job seekers from the general public, connect with youth and students from across the region, and assist with developing our current and future workforce demands.

The previous "in person" Career and Education EXPO hosted 50 exhibitors and 20 post secondary representatives.  

Over 1000 students from eight schools across the region, and 1200 general public, including job seekers, had an opportunity to learn about local career paths and training options.

Exhibitors who were recruiting, received over 100 resumes from job seekers.

The primary goal of the Career and Education EXPO is to showcase employment and career opportunities available within our region, with the hope that youth and job seekers will choose to either stay or return to this region for work, contribute to our local rural economies, and address regional labour supply and demand opportunities/challenges.

An exhibitor portal link and tutorial video will be emailed to you upon registration and you can update/ customize your virtual booth for the big day.  Simply click on the exhibitor portal link to get started.
