2023 TRU Job Fair Banner

Mark your Calendars! Job Fair 2024 will take place on February 1, 2024

Date: Thursday, February 1, 2024 
Time: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Location: Campus Activity Centre, Kamloops TRU Campus 

Career & Experiential Learning is proud to present the annual TRU Job Fair! This annual event is not only one of the largest at a post-secondary institution in the BC Interior, it’s one of the leading job fairs in the province.

Community, provincial and national organizations are recruiting students and new graduates from every program area - Arts, Business, Education, Health, Journalism, Science, Social Work, Tourism, and Trades - for volunteer opportunities, part-time work, summer employment and full-time roles.

In 2023, we had over 90 employers and over 2000 students.

This event provides a platform for students to network, access employment and volunteer opportunities, and learn more about careers in Health, IT, Finance and Banking, Accounting, Tourism, and Trades. Participating employers will also receive promotional considerations throughout the campaign. Follow CEL and TRU Student Life on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn for more insights and information.
