College of the Rockies is hosting its 12th Annual Career and Job Fair Wednesday.
The school calls it the largest job fair in the East Kootenay and expects more than 50 exhibitors this year.
COTR’s Jenn Smith says the event is such a success because it’s open to the entire region with a good mix of businesses in attendance.
“from the private sector, from non-profits, we got lots of tourism, we got finance, we have trades, we have tons of businesses coming in to look for new employees,” Smith says.
2017 was deemed the most successful year to date with 40 vendors and over 900 people attending.
Smith expects this year to be just as big, if not bigger.
The fair runs 11:30 am to 3 PM at the Cranbrook campus.
