Youth Employment Fair another chance for youth to connect with employers

A job fair at the community centre next week will give youth in Revelstoke a chance to connect with potential employers.

A job fair at the community centre next week will give youth in Revelstoke a chance to connect with potential employers.

The Youth Employment Fair is being hosted by Okanagan College and the Stoked Youth Network on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 3-7 p.m. at the community centre.

The goal of the event is to provide a platform for networking opportunities and career exploration between local employers and youth aged 15-30, said Mike Brown, the Youth Skills Liaison at Okanagan College and organizer of the job fair.

The event will create awareness of the existing resources and organizations that support employment in Revelstoke, he added. A number of local employers, ranging from major contractors to heli-ski operations to federal and provincial government agencies will be on hand. “Visitors will have the opportunity to network with potential employers, undertake career exploration, and possibly kick start the hiring process,” said Brown.

The networking portion of the event will take place from 3-6 p.m. in the main hall of the community centre. There will be an hour of live entertainment by Denis Severino afterwards from 6-7 p.m.

The job fair comes after the province’s JobFest came to Revelstoke last month. That event provided youth with tools to explore what kind of careers they might be suited for.
