CAREERexpo CENTRAL ALBERTA

CAREERexpo brings together participants including parents, students and educators from schools, Aboriginal communities and the community at large to showcase local employers representing trades, technologies, health and occupations in high demand, associations and Alberta post-secondary institutions.

High School students discover career opportunities in their community through hands on, interactive exhibits and speak to post-secondary education providers to connect learning to earning.  The event also assists the long term workforce needs of the community by focusing on those skilled occupations in demand.

CAREERexpo is not a job fair, it is an investment in our future.

CAREERexpo provides hands on, interactive ways for high school students to find out about career opportunities in their community and speak to post-secondary education providers to connect learning to earning.
