The County of Simcoe will be hosting a Work in Simcoe County virtual job fair to connect local job seekers with employers. Data shows there were 9,073 active job openings in the region during December 2022.

There are already 24 employers from various sectors that have already signed up to attend the job fair. This includes health care providers, manufacturers, municipalities, and restaurants.

The event will be hosted on an innovative, user-friendly platform where job seekers and employers can connect through one-on-one text chat, audio, and video.

There will also be live webinars during the event on topics like Employment Ontario services and insights from an employer panel on job search tactics.

Previously, Work in Simcoe County job fairs has resulted in more than 250 employers connecting 1,245 people looking for work.

Job seekers are encouraged to register early to access the platform five days before the event and view the companies and opportunities in advance.

Registering early also means you can access 1:1 support from Employment Ontario, including free assistance with resume writing, developing a job search plan, and preparing for the event.

This is a free event, but registration is required. Space is limited.
