Bring your resume to a SkillsPEI Job Fair

Innovation and Advanced Learning

Islanders seeking employment opportunities are invited this Wednesday, March 4, to the SkillsPEI Job Fairs, taking place both in Charlottetown and in Summerside, says Minister of Innovation and Advanced Learning Allen Roach.

“The SkillsPEI Job Fair is about better connecting Islanders with available jobs that match their skills, abilities and interests,” said Minister Roach.

Exhibitors will come from a range of industries including investment firms, engineering, IT, sales, aerospace, bioscience, health sector, tourism industry, trucking, administration, skilled trades and management, to name a few.

“This Wednesday we are bringing together dozens of employers, who are currently recruiting to fill over 300 available jobs, at two convenient locations,” said Minister Roach. “We are encouraging Islanders who are looking for a job, to bring their resume to one of the SkillsPEI Job Fairs, and be prepared to sit down and talk with possible future employers.”

The SkillsPEI Job Fairs will offer a direct contact recruitment approach, creating face-to-face encounters between real candidates and real companies.

Admission to the SkillsPEI Job Fairs is free. Fairs will run from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on March 4 at both locations, the Charlottetown Mall in Charlottetown, and Credit Union Place in Summerside.

In addition, on March 13 in Montague, SkillsPEI will be hosting a Kings County Seafood Processors Job Fair. This will be an industry specific job fair for the three regional seafood processors who combined will be seeking to hire approximately 225 employees for this season. The Fair will take place at the Riverhouse Inn in Montague from 12 noon to 6 p.m.
