The National Job Fair & Training Expo is pleased to invite your high school / facility to organize a field trip with groups of students to explore careers. The event is made of four main pavilions: Training & Education, Employment, Career Services and Entrepreneurship. Thousands of employment and career opportunities, including education programs, skills training, study abroad opportunities, jobs, career & employment services and entrepreneurship services will be offered onsite. Exhibitors are from Ontario, across Canada and even from abroad.
Why visit the fair
Training & Education Pavilion
More specifically, the high schools students in field trips will benefit from visiting the Training & Education Pavilion, an area where students will meet with various educational facilities interested to speak to individuals from all age groups, including high school students. This Pavilion helps students to make a career choice, to identify their many options for furthering their education, and to discover new career opportunities as well. Exhibitors will offer undergraduate, graduate and post graduate courses. Since exhibitors in the Employment Pavilion are looking for adult candidates with some working experience, it should remain clear that the high schools students will not be their immediate target for hiring at the fair.
Having said that, it will be quite an experience for your students to visit the fair to get a feel of the various components of the employment market. Graduating students in group visits will facilitate their transition to the next stage of their lives and will introduce them with early career success, which is an excellent opportunity to get their foot in the door.
Study and volunteer abroad opportunities
Some educational facilities from abroad will exhibit at the fair to offer study abroad opportunities in different countries such as England, Switzerland, Spain, China and Australia, providing a learning experience in a multi-cultural, safe, and secure environment and exposing the students to a rich, life-enhancing, and exciting career-oriented experience. Visitors will learn how volunteers work with local partners to help children get access to quality education and to help people to get better treatment.
The complete list of exhibitors will be available online a few days prior to the opening of the fair. In the meantime, you can consult the list of Exhibitors in the Spotlight which is accessible and updated regularly.
The admission cost for students in field trips is $2.00 only per person (50% off the regular admission of $3.95 per person). Payment will be made upon your arrival at the Admission Desk with a cheque payable to The National Job Fair & Training Expo. At the Admission Desk, there will be a line dedicated to school field trips and group visits with appropriate signage. Your guidance counsellors will represent your groups at the Admission Desk so your students will avoid to line up individually.

"We attended the fair in the fall of 2009. We had antiocipated a fair like others that we have attended and saw this as an opportunity to walk around and meet other exhibitors during slow times. To our surprise, we quickly realized this wasn't just another job fair. We were so busy that my colleague and I did not speak to each other until 3:30 p.m. In addition, we have had a position that has been opened for almost 2 years as we found no qualified applicants in our search. During the first day in attendance, we found TWO qualified applicants! We can safely term our first appearance at The National Job Fair & Training Expo a great success."

Our corporate HR team also brought in many resumes for IT positions. Thanks again Daniel for all of your hard work. We are looking forward to our continued relationship and more success in the fall!!!"
"I wanted to say thank you and I’m very happy RONA Ontario participated this year. Based on the over 200 resumes we received, I’m certain we’ll get some caliber candidates. I also wanted to commend you on your high level of Customer Service you have give RONA over the course of the last few months. Now understanding the magnitude of the job fair, your call back time and service is outstanding, and I look forward to having two booths next year!"
HONEY BEE MANUFACTURING (SASKATCHEWAN)
"After many years of involvement in major Trade Shows both in North America and Europe I would like to pass on a note of appreciation for the high level of organization exhibited by Daniel Levesque in the orchestration of The National Job Fair & Training Expo event in Toronto. For those of us who are exhibitors we always live under the constant pressure of our day to day business and often feel somewhat overwhelmed as we prepare for a Trade Show. It was comforting to have every step so well documented with timely reminders arriving as the event drew closer. The stress involved in preparation was greatly alleviated by the guidance provided. Thanks Daniel for the friendly, helpful and professional assistance. "

"You are one of the best Show Managers I have dealt with! This will be my first job fair at The National Job Fair and Training Expo and among all of the conferences etc. I have attended I absolutely love the informative emails. They provide us first-timers (and repeat attendees) to the National Job Fair and Training Expo with a detailed set of prepping guidelines. I'm very excited to be attending."
