Global Skillz hosts Ottawa’s largest newcomer settlement and job fair that is facilitated each year by Neo Media in partnership with multiple Ottawa agencies. Since its launch 2013, our event has attracted over 100 aspiring professionals in the first year. That number grew to 350 newcomers and job seekers in 2018. By introducing newcomers in Ottawa to the local industry leaders and relevant local service providers and businesses, we help create opportunities for enterprises like yourself to position your products and services with a significant (and often un-engaged) segment of Ottawa’s population – newcomers looking to settle into their new life, home, career and community. Our 2019 Newcomers Job Fair will take place on September 14th at the Nepean Sportsplex. We are again anticipating a big turnout and we welcome Employers as well as Prospective Job Seekers to make the best use of the event.
The newcomer population represents significant talent development opportunities, especially considering their high incidence of college/university education and rich professional backgrounds. For interested employers, we can offer you multiple options for engagement, including access to event booths, participation in event workshops & plenary sessions, and involvement as a recognized sector expert/mentor.
