Virtual Career Fair, March 26th, 2014
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is co-delivering a Virtual Career Fair on March 26th, 2014 in collaboration with Skills International.

The objectives of the Virtual Career Fair are to link newcomers to potential employment opportunities commensurate with their skills and experience and help develop professional networks and job search strategies.  The Virtual Career Fair will also demonstrate how employers can benefit from the skills, experience, and innovation that skilled immigrants can bring to their organizations.

If you are an employer we encourage your participation. The Virtual Career Fair is open to all employers, including large corporations and SMEs from all sectors.  There is no cost for employers to participate in the event.
