Supercharge your career at the Best Places to Work Career and Training Expo

Best Places to Work Career and Training Expo

How would you like to network with dozens of the region’s best employers?

That’s the main idea behind the inaugural Best Places to Work Career and Training Expo, scheduled for Sept. 28 at the Shaw Centre from 11:30 am to 6:00 pm.

The event is being organized by the Ottawa Business Journal in partnership with the Ottawa Board of Trade and WCG Employment Ontario.

“We repeatedly hear from business leaders that attracting talent is one of the biggest challenges they face,” says OBJ publisher Michael Curran. “We want to help with that challenge in a very direct way. We’re planning a really dynamic event that proudly and loudly demonstrates to students, experienced workers and new Canadians that Ottawa and Eastern Ontario are the best places to work and live.”

The expo will feature dozens of exhibitors from industries, including technology, construction, manufacturing, professional services and the public sector.

Main stage presentations will provide attendees with local data on career trends, as well as education and training opportunities. Through the Hire Local initiative, all of the city’s post-secondary institutions will be present, including the University of Ottawa, Carleton University, Algonquin College and La Cité.

A limited number of attendees will receive complimentary business portraits. Similarly, local professionals will be conducting one-on-one career mentoring sessions.

Attendance is free with advance registration.
