If the return to work and school has you dreaming of a different future, it’s time to make those dreams a reality.
For people across the North Island, the free Comox Career & Post-Secondary Education Event, at the Comox Community Centre, is the place to make it happen, Nov. 24 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“After two years of virtual meetings, classes and events, we are thrilled to be back in person and helping people make the connections they need to take the next step in their careers,” says Ranee Pal, Black Press Media events manager.
“Whether it’s pursuing a new career path, taking the next step on the path you already love, or getting the education you need to make it happen, you’ll find the resources you need right here.”
Why attend a Career and Post-Secondary Education event?
We know businesses throughout northern British Columbia are actively looking for team members to help them expand and thrive in our growing economy – one that’s expected to see one million job openings across the province over the next decade.
And as B.C. businesses deal with an already low unemployment rate, many are changing workplace culture to answer employees’ need for careers that are rewarding and meaningful, as well as traditional draws like competitive compensation and benefits.
The value of exploring those options in person, with people who can answer your questions and provide the information you need to make decisions that matter, is huge.
Educators are also stepping up, both to prepare students for today’s evolving career options, and to ensure future employees have the skills employers need.
The Comox event is one of a series of Career and Post-Secondary Education Events Black Press Media hosts across British Columbia, where you can expect to meet representatives from numerous employers, including Community Living BC, Lordco Auto Parts, Tigh-Na-Mara, 19 Wing Air Services and more. Also on hand will be post-secondary institutions including Discovery Community College, University Canada West, and Western Maritime Institute.
“We hear so many remarkable stories about the connections people make at our career and education events – and how the people they meet and programs they discover open doors to options they hadn’t even considered before,” Pal says.
