Important Update! Job FairJob Fair – Wednesday, June 21, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
The Employment Services department is inviting local employers to be part of our community job fair here at KCR at the end of June! Seven different employers will have booths set up and we will be inviting the public to bring their resumes and smiling faces to introduce themselves to potential employers. In today’s job-seeking world, having an opportunity to talk to employers face-to-face is incredibly beneficial, so please encourage your job-seeking friends/family/clients to come down, introduce themselves and talk about local opportunities for the Kelowna area.

Employment Services: What We DoKelowna Community Resources – Employment Services is pleased to offer two amazing training programs to help those who are unemployed or underemployed and are seeking to improve their attachment to the labour force. With both of these programs, our goals are to help you identify your career goals, assist with your job search, resume, cover letter, interview skills, and other job-relevant skills.
Both training programs are free (no cost) to participants. They are 6 weeks long, and are 3 hours per day (either morning or afternoon) from Monday to Friday. Our service area is from Oyama to Peachland, so if you’re in Oyama, Lake Country, Winfield, Rutland, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Westbank, or Peachland, please contact us at 250.763.8008 or ac.rcknull@secivrestnemyolpme, or read more about our programs by clicking the links below:
