How it works
The virtual job fair provides an opportunity for job-seekers to connect with potential employers in an environment similar to a traditional job fair
setting but using technology to job search online. This saves money, time and resources for job-seekers. It also makes it easier to connect with
employers and keep you updated on what is going on in the local labour markets no matter where you live in the province.
This page will provide information on how virtual job fairs work and how to use it as part of your job search strategy.

work visa) to participate in this event. If you live outside Canada and are interested in moving to New Brunswick, you must apply through
