The Alberta Employment & Career Fair is Alberta’s most comprehensive career fair and is held over two days. The purpose of the Fair is to bring opportunities together for individuals to make informative career and education decisions, and connect employers with potential employees.
The 2014 Fair is the 18th year that the Fair has been running. In 2012, the Fair was rebranded from the Canada Career Week Fair to the Alberta Employment & Career Fair.
Exhibitors and attendees at the 2014 Fair can expect to see up to 200 exhibitors and over 10,000 visitors. Exhibitors range from volunteer organizations, job opportunities, careers in the trades and those providing information on professional designations.
