Port Hardy—Event organizers say that registrations for table and booth displays are rapidly filling up.  With the Mount Waddington Jobs and Career Expo just weeks away, interested employers are encouraged to reserve their space now.

The website, www.mwjobexpo.com, is a one-stop shop for employer registrations, sponsorships and event information.

David Mitchell, manager of Community Futures Mount Waddington and planning committee member said, “events like the Mount Waddington Jobs and Career Expo are a great opportunity to showcase your business, the jobs you create and to connect with prospective employees from the North Island.”

In a recent Op-Ed Shirley Bond, minister of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training, wrote “a recent survey showed that 59 per cent of young adults in this province simply don’t know how to get started. They don’t have the right information on what it’s like to work in skilled trades and technical positions.

“They know it’s a good paycheque, but they also think there are few long-term prospects.”

The Mount  Waddington Jobs and Career Expo April 14 at the Port Hardy arena makes it clear that there are good jobs and careers right here in the North Island communities.  For more information about your opportunity to get involved call 250-956-2220 or go to www.mwjobexpo.com.
