As the job market heats up, Okanagan College's Penticton campus is throwing open the doors to connect employers and career seekers next week.

The Penticton Campus Career Fair will be held on April 5 from 1 to 6 p.m. in the Centre of Excellence (PC113) at the Penticton campus, 583 Duncan Ave. West.

"The Penticton campus prides itself on collaborating with the community, and the fair is an opportunity to connect employers in the region with much-needed talent," said Meri Kim Oliver, Okanagan College Vice-President Students.

Students and community members can connect with employers in industries such as hospitality, food, wine, tourism, administration, recreation, corrections, early childhood education, and more.

Admission is free, and the public is welcome to attend. Parking, food and give-away bags will be provided free to attendees. Proof of vaccination will be required according to provincial health orders.

The event also serves as a food drive for the Penticton Campus Harbour Food Bank, which helps address food insecurity amongst students. Employers are donating non-perishable food items and community members are welcome to bring an item to donate as well.
