At least 47 employers will be in Penticton next week for the South Okanagan’s largest job fair.

The annual Start Here Penticton Job Fair comes to the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre on Wednesday, March 20, with medical, hospitality, trucking and manufacturing among the featured industries.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

From seasonal to part-time employment and full-time opportunities, organizations are expected to have something available for anyone currently in the market for a job.

Another 14 groups have signed up to provide employment and training resources, according to event organizers.
