On November 16, Saint-Hyacinthe will hold the city’s first-ever Virtual Job Fair.
Designed to help businesses based in Saint-Hyacinthe find the qualified candidates they need to fill currently open positions, the Virtual Job Fair will empower passive and active job seekers to connect from remote locations to a website that will allow them to visit employer kiosks, consult job opportunities and submit CVs. Most importantly, the Virtual Job Fair will connect job seekers with hiring managers who could offer them their next career opportunity.
In practical terms, this virtual event and platform will allow employers and candidates to have private discussions by video chat, instant message or by phone. No matter where a job seeker is located in Québec, they will have the opportunity to connect with decision makers from 15 businesses based in the Maskoutains region.
Interested candidates can visit the official website for the Virtual Job Fair at http://emploi-sthyacinthe.ca/ to learn more about available positions and to sign up for the Fair, which will take place from 10am to 7pm on November 16.
The Sainte-Hyacinthe Virtual Job Fair is sponsored by the Maskoutains region with financial support and participation from Emploi-Québec. To increase public awareness of the event and to promote employment in the province of Québec, the organizers also developed a partnership with Jobboom. Through these partnerships, the Maskoutains region is promoting the local economy and encouraging the growth of the talent pool in the region in order to meet the needs of employers and job seekers alike.
“Just like in other regions of Québec, our local employers face significant recruiting challenges, particularly when looking to fill a position that requires a specific specialization,” said Francois Vincent, director of the Centre Local d’Emploi (CLE) in Sainte-Hyacinthe.
“In this context, a virtual job fair is an interesting way to connect local business leaders with professionals who possess the skills they are looking for, especially since online platforms and social media have become integral aspects of the job search process.”
On November 16, get plugged in to career opportunities at the Virtual Job Fair in Sainte-Hyacinthe!
