Huge Job Fair Coming to Oakville


Update those resumes and make sure your shoes are shined — Halton Region is hosting a job fair in Oakville this month with 70 local employers.

"Halton's strong economic standing is reflected through low levels of unemployment and a high rate of job creation, with over 4,000 new jobs created across the region in 2016," said Halton Regional Chair Gary Carr.

"By connecting job seekers with employers at our job fairs, we're strengthening our economy and ensuring Halton remains a great place to live and work."

Halton is home to 23 of the top 500 fastest growing companies in Canada, according to Canadian Business magazine.

The Region's robust economy attracts employers from diverse industries such as advanced manufacturing, information technology, healthcare, financial services and more.

Each year, Employment Halton's two offices in Milton and Oakville support nearly 9,500 job seekers and more than 200 employers by providing free services such as training, placements and access to online job boards.

Job-seekers can attend employment workshops and get assistance from on-site staff to create resumes, prepare for interviews, or engage in career planning.

The event is taking place on Tuesday, Nov. 7 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Oakville Conference & Banquet Centre (2515 Wyecroft Rd., Oakville).
