NIEFS North Island Career Expo 2010

North Island Employment (NIEFS) will hold their 2010 North Island Career Expo 'Looking Forward' in November 24. This event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the North Island College/Timberline gymnasium in Campbell River.

This Career Expo is vastly different from a traditional job fair. A job fair is an event where one or more employers who are eager to hire employees, make themselves available to talk to job seekers while they accept their resumes and job applications.

Unlike a job fair, NIEFS Career Expo 'Looking Forward' offers a unique opportunity to research careers of the future. You'll have the opportunity to interview employers, educators, and people employed in these fields to find out about the skills, training and education these careers require.

Do you know how to take advantage of all that information and expertise gathered under one roof? If you're uncertain or don't feel confident walking up to strangers to ask for career information, NIEFS invites you to register for 'How to make the most of the Career Expo'. This workshop takes place the week before, on Thursday Nov. 18 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the NIEFS office in Campbell River.

'How to make the most of the Career Expo' will review which businesses and training organizations are participating in the Career Expo. You will learn how to approach the different exhibitors and what key questions to ask in order to get the information you need to make an informed career choice.

To register for "How to make the most of the Career Expo" call NIEFS at 250-286-3441 and ask to meet with an Employment Advisor. This workshop is offered free of charge to North Islanders who are unemployed or facing a lay-off.

This service is funded in whole or part through the Canada-British Columbia Labour Market Development Agreement.


Campbell River Employment Foundations Society was incorporated as a non-profit society in January of 1994 after an eight year relationship with the Strathcona Employment and Economic Development Society and The Job Project's Employment Training Programs and Services.

In response to the Society's delivery of service on a regional basis our legal name was changed in February 1999 to the North Island Employment Foundations Society (NIEFS).
