VMAC sponsors B.C.’s largest career development fair
VMAC was proud to sponsor Nanaimo's Education & Career Fair (ECF) in December 2018. ECF is responsible for British Columbia's largest career development fair, attracting over 10,000 attendees over 5 different locations each year.
"It's our pleasure to support this event, which supports the career pursuits of B.C. students planning for higher education and learning about the various career paths available to them," says Chris Larsen, VMAC'S HR and Special Projects Manager.
The Nanaimo Education & Career Fair included a variety of exhibitors, including local employers, trade and professional associations, as well as universities, colleges and technical institutions.
Students visiting the VMAC booth were interested in learning about the wide range of career paths available to them, most notably Engineering, Fabrication, Machining, Marketing, and Quality Control. Those particularly interested in learning more about VMAC and their in-house manufactured products were given a tour of the demo truck, equipped with various VMAC air compressor and multi-power systems.
"We wanted to communicate to students that their options are limitless in the manufacturing industry. In addition to offering career paths, training, and apprenticeships for engineering and trades, we also have opportunities in areas like sales and marketing, finance, supply chain, HR, and quality control," says Chris Larsen. "We hope these students had the opportunity to speak with a variety of employers and post-secondary institutions at this career fair and were able to learn of some new career possibilities."
