“The regional job fairs attract a variety of employers recruiting for a range of positions. These events are a great way for candidates to meet face to face with employers and make an impression,” said Jacinda Rudolph, Grey County Economic Development Officer. “If you’re looking for a job or are considering a change, the Regional Job Fairs are your best chance to discover what opportunities are currently available throughout the region.”
Some of the registered employers include Canada Post, Grey Bruce Health Services, Bluewater District School Board, Pickard Construction, and more. Job seekers are not required to register in advance for the fairs but are encouraged to come prepared and bring copies of their resumes.
