Following the networking, the career conversations continued through one-on-one private speed interviews and career advising appointments.
Hosted in-person at the Vancouver Convention Centre on May 13, jobseekers met with 19 exhibitors to expand their network and explore exciting career opportunities in business, accounting, and finance.
