NOVEMBER 2ND | 4th Annual City of Richmond Diversity Symposium
Career Paths for Skilled Immigrants participated in the City of Richmond’s 4th Annual Diversity Symposium, “Moving from Diversity to Inclusion: Exploring Pathways to Inclusion for Different Communities”.
The Mayor of Richmond, Mr. Malcolm Brodie gave the opening remarks and some of the City Councilors were in attendance at this event. We are thrilled to say, it was a very busy day, with other service providers, volunteers and the general public stopping by our table, asking questions and showing a great interest in the services we provide.
NOVEMBER 6TH | WORKING IN MANUFACTURING
Earlier this month, we partnered with Avia/WorkBC, Richmond Society for Community Living, BC Manufacturing Alliance and Hayden Diamond Bits Industries to organize Working in Manufacturing!
BC is experiencing a strong economy with many companies looking to hire for several positions, yet every day we see newcomers struggling to secure employment. This event aimed to provide a better understanding of this very strong sector in Richmond and to provide a larger picture of the opportunities of growth and advancement for newcomers.
The panelists, Lawrence Wong from Hayden Diamond Bit Ltd, Cormac O’Reilly from BC Alliance for Manufacturing and Michelle Tan from CLS Catering Services provided a wealth of information regarding; their recruiting processes, transferable skills newcomers can use in various positions, the path to supervisory or managerial positions, benefits and pay in manufacturing, and many other interesting topics. It was a small but very successful event.
NOVEMBER 7TH | HIRING FAIR
On November 7, 2018, we attended the quarterly Job Fair held at the Richmond Library.
Ten companies participated at this very busy and successful event, with over 150 job seekers coming through! Representatives from Costco, Telus and Amazon, as well as MTU, Air Canada and Kidtropolis left with plenty of resumes to choose from. Our friends at Randstad promised to come back as they were impressed with our pool of job seekers and have great opportunities in Richmond.
JOB FAIR TIP: Before attending a job fair, check the Careers page of the companies attending! This way your conversation with the employer will be targeted on their needs and focused on your skills that can help with that need!
