Finding a full time job in the current economic climate can be a challenge.

The BC Jobs Fair coming to Thompson Rivers University this Friday provides lots of information on training, jobs and how to get them. The event runs from noon to 7 p.m.

The purpose of the job fair is to connect job seekers with potential employers.

Exhibitors will include select employers from a range of sectors, as well as post-secondary institutions, industry associations, training authorities, and the health authorities.

The interactive BC Jobs Start Here mobile exhibit, which toured the province this summer, will also be on hand to provide information about skills training, employment services, job banks and career development tools.

The public is invited to this free event to meet local employers and get more information on career development and skills training available in B.C.

While job opportunities may be limited today, event organizers say that over the next 10 years, there will be more than one million job openings in British Columbia, including more than 350,000 new jobs, which will result in a shortage of skilled labour, particularly in the trades.
