Looking forward to meeting hundreds of Camosun students and graduates, 25 employers have signed up for Camosun's Trades and Technology Career Fair this Thursday, January 29, 2015. Hosted by Camosun's Co-operative Education and Student Employment office, this annual event is scheduled for 10am-2pm in the Technologies building at Interurban Campus.

The career fair offers a unique opportunity for prospective employers and future employees to connect.  Students and alumni seeking jobs and career advancement are encouraged to show up with resumes highlighting their skills and credentials; employers hoping to recruit a skilled workforce are given a chance to promote their companies as desirable places to work.

"Because of Camosun's applied skills approach to education, our grads and co-op students make excellent employees," explains Dr. Tom Roemer, Vice Present, Strategic Development. "The students are eager to meet with employers and the employers often hire on the spot."

In addition to looking for graduates and alumni to hire, many employers offer short-term project work to co-op students and interns. Because these work arrangements allow the employer and employee to get to know each other, these work terms often evolve into permanent employment after the student graduates.

Following the career fair, exhibitors will be invited for a guided tour of Camosun's Technology Access Centre, industry's access point for a variety of technical resources available at the college. The tour will include a walk-through of the machining and robotics centre and the 3D modelling lab.

List of exhibitors follows.
