A Very Successful Hiring Fair
December 15, 2021
On December 8th, 2021 the WorkBC Maple Ridge and WorkBC Langley Centres hosted a Virtual IT Hiring Fair. 68 job seekers attended and four companies shared their current staffing needs and their hiring processes and answered attendees questions. The WorkBC Centres would like to thank these companies for their participation: Procom, T&T, Traction on Demand, and Link Point.
The event also featured Leonardo Arbelaez, a Data Engineer / Data Analyst, as the keynote speaker. He shared his perspectives on the current IT job market, the impacts of COVID 19 on work and job searching as well as information on resources, training and networking options.
Many of the attendees indicated interest in obtaining support from the WorkBC Centres and are now working with Career Coaches and Employment Placement Specialists.
