The first annual Elk Valley Spring Job Fair takes place Thursday in Fernie.
EK Employment says the event is free for all job seekers in the area.
In the past, Fernie Mayor Mary Giuliano has called the staffing shotage in her community a crisis.
Organizers says the job fair is a great way for employers to meet with applicants in person and promote their business.
The event goes from 2 to 5 PM at the Fernie Family Centre.
