Hiring fairs and tailored recruiting events
YWCA employment centres organize several large hiring fairs each year as well as many individual recruiting events on an as-needed basis.
- YWCA hiring fairs are organized several times each year and are attended by some of the top companies in Vancouver, both large and small. Participation is free and the YWCA covers all advertising costs (a $1,500 value – for FREE).
- YWCA employment centres also host tailored individual recruiting events to assist employers with their more immediate recruiting needs. The space is provided for free and the events are promoted internally within the organization, while the employers handle any external advertising and promotion of the events.
Contact one of our centres for an invite to our next hiring fair or for more information on organizing an individual recruiting event.
