Grand Erie Virtual Job Fair & Skills Exploration Event

The Grand Erie Virtual Job Fair & Skills Exploration Event will be held entirely online Oct. 6, 2020 for the communities of Brantford, Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk, Six Nations and New Credit.

Organized by the Workforce Planning Board of Grand Erie and the regional Skilled Trades Alliance, this day long event will allow job seekers to connect with local employers remotely using cell phones, tablets or computers.

People will have an opportunity to learn about exciting careers in the skilled trades and other major sectors, as well as learn about local training, apprenticeships and future job trends.

The focus is promoting occupations in Grand Erie, community building, and inspiring individuals to succeed. Participants can “meet” and chat with employers in need of workers, now or in the future.

Over 40 regional companies and organizations will be exhibiting their programs and job opportunities.

The day-long virtual event will take place on vFairs, a virtual event platform that uses advanced 3D technology to create a live event experience complete with exhibitor booths in a hall, panel discussions, webinars and an auditorium.

Participants would be able to interact with exhibitors in real time via chat, email or Zoom video-conferencing.

Celebrity trades promoter Mandy Rennehan will be the keynote speaker for the event.
