Thompson Okanagan Tourism Centre will be hosting a job fair and open house later this month.
The virtual event will be held on Thursday, April 22, to introduce participants of the Tourism Skills Training Program to potential employers and industry connections.
Thompson Okanagan tourism businesses are invited to take part in the event, which will consist of one-on-one meetings in the morning and unscheduled networking in the afternoon.
The Tourism Skills Training Program was created in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, providing 13 weeks of domestic tourism skills training to those in the industry who lost their jobs or were barely hanging on to their employment.
The deadline for businesses to register for the event is Friday, April 16, and there will be a technical support session for participants on Monday, April 19.
