Your new career starts here

Black Press Extreme Education and Career Fair comes to Nanaimo June 21

Whether people are seeking a summer job or looking for something more long-term, a coming career fair on Vancouver Island will present plenty of opportunities.

The Black Press Extreme Education and Career Fair is being held June 21 in Nanaimo and organizers are happy with how things are coming together.

“I think it’s going to be good,” said Sheri Jackson, events manager. “It’s whatever you’re looking for, whether you’re looking for a career or just a new job. Whatever piques your interest, I think there’s a good variety.”

Work B.C., B.C. Corrections, the RCMP, the Canadian Armed Forces and Canada Border Services Agency will be some of the exhibitors, plus Vancouver Island University, Black Press, temporary work agencies and lots more.

Those interested in stopping by should consider dressing for success, as some employers may be willing to interview on the spot. No matter what, there will be opportunities to make connections.

“You can’t go wrong if you’re a student coming out of school and you’re looking for some guidance,” Jackson said. “We do reach out to all the schools; we look for a lot of community engagement with the universities and the high schools.”

The Black Press Extreme Education and Career Fair will be held Thursday, June 21, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Nanaimo Military Camp at 709 Nanaimo Lakes Rd.

Black Press has experience hosting career fairs in communities around the province, including on Vancouver Island; for coverage of an event in the Comox Valley this past winter, click here.
