EMSB holds successful Career Fair

Montreal - Monday, October 28, 2019

More than 2,000 Secondary V students attended the 19th annual EMSB Career Fair on October 16 and 17 at St. Pius X Career Centre in Ahuntsic. Jack Dym of Pipe and Piling Supplies Ltd. and RBC Royal Bank were the event’s title sponsors. 

Several on air personalities from the media were on hand to talk to students about careers in this field and serve as guest emcees. They included: Sabrina Marandola of CBC Radio One, Meghan Kelly from The Beat 92.5 FM, Tim Sargeant and David Sedell from Global TV, Christine Long from CTV and Fariha Naqvi-Mohamed from CityNews.

From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 16, the Career Fair was open to the community-at-large. This was an excellent opportunity for parents to attend with their children (Grades 10 and 11) as they look towards post-secondary education options in a one-stop shopping experience .Hundreds of people packed the room, all very appreciative  to make all of these contacts. Mario Argiropoulos and Harriet Cohen from EMSB Adult Education and Vocational Services are the Career Fair co-chairs. The Student Services and AEVS Departments of the EMSB coordinate this program.   The main objective of the Career Fair is to provide students with an in-depth exposure to the various educational opportunities available to them.  All students will take part in a brief general information session in the St. Pius X auditorium. Students will then have the chance to visit the various exhibition/information booths staffed by representatives from English vocational centres, CEGEPS, universities and some private business colleges.
