Over 160 Businesses to Be on Site for 30th Edition of Job and Training Fair-A Record Participation!

LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - The Job and Training Fair has not brought together so many employers since 2001. The 30th edition, to be held March 18 and 19, 2008 at the Palais des congres de Montreal, will welcome no fewer than 160 separate businesses, not to mention the added number of different banners they represent.

Direct, Real

The Job and Training Fair is open to anyone 16 years of age and older. Jobs, special and professional development courses, services, help, everything job-related. Jobs, from the rarest to the most popular, small and large salaries, part time or full time. There'll be lots of them in a multitude of sectors at all levels of the hierarchy. There'll be companies from here and elsewhere. This is one opportunity you can't afford to miss, no matter who you are.

Availability of information

For the first time, the population will be able to access the list of exhibitors before the Fair on the event's Web site This list will be used to prepare candidates, and the list of job openings is available the same way. We encourage people to consult this list and come to meet the employers, on site, well prepared. Remember though that these companies have made the effort to come to see you in person; Web-based contacts are no way to make an impression. This is one opportunity you can't afford to miss, no matter who you are.

What's new

Last November, Detail Quebec, manager of the Salon de l'emploi du commerce de detail, concluded an agreement with Expoz Inc. to integrate its activities with those of the Job and Training Fair so job-seekers only have to focus their efforts on a single address. The result was that 26 companies answered the call to join this partnership and they'll be represented here.

As concerns new alliances, the 30th Job and Training Fair also partnered with the local Montreal branch of the Society of Automotive Engineers of Montreal (SAE Montreal), thus enabling the new internationally recognized Montreal division to be showcased to the large numbers of engineers visiting the Job and Training Fair. This section of the Fair will welcome the STM, RTL, BBA, Heroux-Devtec, Bombardier Aerospace and many more.

The goal of the initiative is to give recruiters from outside the greater metropolitan area access to a large number of job-seekers.

Practical Information - JOB AND TRAINING FAIR

Backed by its unparalleled past successes, the Job and Training Fair has built an enviable reputation as the top event in the marketplace.
