The Tl’azten Nation Career Fair drew in a good crowd on April 6.

Eugene Joseph School in Tachie was filled with booths, information, guest speakers and workshops.

There was a variety of prospective employers on hand representing a variety of public and private industries.

They were there to offer support and inspire those young and old who might be looking for a new career path.

Various companies and organizations including; the R.C.M.P., Mount Milligan, I.B.EW, Work BC,  Fort St. James District, the Fort St. James Fire Dept. and the College of New Caledonia set up booths filled with information and they were on the ready to answer any questions.

Community and School Support (C.A.S.S.) students from The College of New Caledonia spoke about their own experiences of going back to school despite all odds.

C.A.S.S. student Carmen Bird was one of those students.

“I wanted to put myself out there, to be a positive role model to encourage young people to go for it and get an education.”

The fair ended with prizes and hands filled with pamphlets.

“If you want to go back to school or find a new job, it’s a great opportunity for people to receive encouragement and get started,” Bird said.
