Over 30 employers squeezed into the Gordon Beard Arena April 24 for the University College of the North’s (UCN) 2019 career expo.
Just like in previous years, this event was designed to let elementary and high school students know about the job opportunities that are available in Northern Manitoba and beyond.
To hammer this point home, the event showcased work in a variety of fields, including construction, carpentry, education, law enforcement, hydro, transportation, hairdressing, social work and many more.
Students from surrounding communities like Split Lake, South Indian Lake, Oxford House and Wabowden were invited to participate as well.
According to recruitment officer Nick Pajic, UCN’s The Pas and Thompson campuses switch hosting duties every year, with the event coming back to the Hub of the North in 2019.
Pajic also said that the expo used to be a strictly UCN-centred affair, but gradually opened up to include other organizations, to the point where they even invited representatives from Red River College to take part in this year’s festivities.
