The Tourism Industry Association of Prince Edward Island (TIAPEI) will be hosting the annual Tourism Job Fair on Wednesday Feb. 18, at the Murchison Centre, 17 St. Pius X Avenue, Charlottetown from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Tourism Job Fair has proven to be an event that is beneficial to both the employers and job seekers alike.
With more than 600 attendees last year, it is an excellent opportunity for all employers working in the tourism industry to recruit, interview, and potentially hire new employees all in one convenient location.
Job seekers who are interested in the tourism industry can meet with over 30 employers representing over 50 businesses all hiring in one location.
The goal of the Tourism Job Fair is to provide job seekers, students, employers, training institutions and government agencies a central location to network. This event will focus on job seekers and tourism employers who are able to recruit, interview, hire and advertise all in one location. The Tourism Job Fair will be most effective for businesses that are currently recruiting, expecting to recruit in the near future, or those wanting to promote their services to job seekers.
