Open Door Group, Sunshine Coast Tourism and Sechelt Innovations Limited, are hosting a career and job fair next Saturday, March 29, at the Seaside Centre in Sechelt.

The event is open to all Sunshine Coast businesses and features a number of educational institutions and career pursuits. Attendance is free to the public. Employers will be speaking to candidates from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. about immediate and future positions.

Open Door Group runs the WorkBC centres in both Gibsons and Sechelt, which provide free employment services to unemployed residents on the Sunshine Coast. "We are excited to sponsor this event, as this is an excellent opportunity for job seekers on the Sunshine Coast to network with local employers" said Peri Clark from Open Door Group. Any local job seekers requiring assistance to prepare for the event can drop in to either one of the local centres to access workshops or one-to-one coaching on resume writing, interview preparation, networking skills and much more. For more information about WorkBC services, see www.secheltesc.ca or call 1 866-377-3670.

"The tourism and hospitality industry is hiring and we hope to make that process a little easier this spring," said Celia Robben, president of Sunshine Coast Tourism.

A variety of local businesses are taking resumes and speaking with potential employees regarding immediate and upcoming positions. Post-secondary educational institutions will also be on hand to discuss programs of study.

Businesses who are currently hiring or planning to hire should contact president@sunshinecoastcanada.com to participate. Space is limited and businesses must register in advance.
