Huge job expo set for Langley

More than 40 employers expected at Avia Hiring Expo on November 4

A large-scale job fair is coming to Langley next week.

More than 40 employers are expected at the Avia Hiring Expo.

“(The employers) are looking for people of all types, of all walks of life,” said Greg Stephens, the WorkBC Avia Employment Service Centre manager.

“We are excited.”

“There are going to be some very, very good jobs for people with the qualifications.

“They are going to be a lot of positions available.”

The event will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 4 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre (20393 Fraser Hwy.) in Langley.

There is no admission charge.

A broad spectrum of employers from around the Lower Mainland is expected, with representatives from retail, engineering, skilled labour, transportation, warehouse, sales, security, hospitality, office, healthcare and customer service expected.

“This is a great opportunity for people to come out from around the Lower Mainland,” said Pam Kumar, an industry and community relationship liaison with Avia.

“This is something very good for the community.”

She added that the nearby Langley Centre Transit Exchange makes the expo much more accessible.

People attending the expo are encouraged to dress appropriately, bring a resume and be prepared to possibly be interviewed on site. Some research ahead of time on the companies is also recommended.
