Job Fair Caravan arrives Friday

After a couple of near misses, the Canada Starts here Jobs Caravan will finally make that final hour and a half drive down Highway 16 to Prince Rupert.

As we outlined in the past here and here, the Jobs caravan seemed to only have Terrace punched into the ole GPS, however last month they set the co-ordinates for Prince Rupert and started down the road.

And tomorrow, the exhibition of job opportunity will set up shop at the Highliner Inn, offering the chance for job seekers to link up with would be employers.

The full list of employers and exhibitors in attendance can be found here.

Fifteen original employers seem to have been whittled down to 12 through cancellations, though there apparently is the promise of more to come by the time they open the doors at 11 am on Friday.

The opportunity to explore further, will continue on until 6 PM when the exhibitors pack it all up and head off to the next stop on the province wide tour.

More on the Job Fairs can be found on their website, while those on twitter can find out more and gain updates on the #BCJobFair theme

The tour featured stops (and more would be employers) in Terrace and Smithers earlier this week and will set up shop in Surrey on Monday.
