The career expo will showcase various employment sectors including: Accounting/Finance, Advanced Manufacturing, Aviation, Communications, Construction, Education, Emergency Services, Employment Resources, Engineering, Entrepreneurship, Food Service, Health and Wellness, Life Science, the Military, Skilled Trades, Technology, Tourism and more. Exhibitors that hire student’s, bring on co-op students or are looking for student volunteers are also clearly identified in the career expo area.
The current planned breakout sessions running throughout the day include Talking Post-Secondary, Talking Trades, OSAP, Building Your Brand, Be Your Own Boss including a panel of Entrepreneurs, Networking, Stress Management, Military Careers and Job Practice Interview Opportunities.
