Try-a-trade INTERACTIVE CAREER FAIR 2020
Try-A-Trade Interactive Career Fair is an event where students can have a hands-on experience at exploring trades as a career. This unique career fair is free for exhibitors to promote their trade and business to students in North-West Saskatchewan. North West College and the North West Career Development Partnership aim to bring students from Living Sky School Division 202, Light of Christ Catholic School Division 16, Northwest School Division 203, North West College students and members of the general public together to showcase different careers in the trades.
Our tenth annual Try-A-Trade event will look a little different this year. Usually, the fair is held at the NationsWEST Field House in North Battleford. This year, we plan to offer a more virtual experience for those interested in the trades, health care, community service and business-related careers.
This year, North West College will be highlighting our programs in lunchtime presentations. Students will have an opportunity to explore career paths in business, health care, community service or trades. Students will have an opportunity to see footage of the career in action - such as welders using a welding torch, a cook setting-up their mise-en-place with their knife skills, etc. Students will also have an opportunity to connect with the Student Recruitment Officer or ask questions to the Program Coordinators.
Stay tuned to our EVENTS on the North West College website for details on the first Program Spotlight. Events are listed on the front page of the website: https://northwestcollege.ca/
Be sure to join us for Try-A-Trade Interactive Career Fair when it resumes in North Battleford in 2021-2022. Students can connect with employers and experts in the industry, try a trade, and connect with post-secondary education options. As always, admission for participants will be free to attend.
