MONTREAL, OCTOBER 15, 2013-  The 14th annual English Montreal School Board (EMSB) Career Fair  will take place October 23 and 24 at St. Pius X Adult Centre in Ahuntsic (9955 Papineau) for more than 4,000 Secondary IV and V students.

Among the special guests  will be some RBC sponsored  Olympic athletes. Several on air personalities from 92.5 The Beat FM will also be on hand to talk to students about careers in broadcasting, including morning show hosts Cat Spencer and Sarah Bartok.  
From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 23, the Career Fair will be open to the community-at-large. Organizers note that this is a good opportunity for parents to attend with their children as they look towards post-secondary education options. The EMSB  Council of Commissioners will also hold their monthly public meeting on site that same evening.

Harriet Cohen from EMSB Adult Education and Vocational Services is the new Career Fair chairperson. The Student Services and AEVS Departments of the EMSB   coordinate this  program.  Ms. Cohen notes that the main objective  of the Career Fair is to provide students with an in-depth exposure to the various educational opportunities available to them.  All students will take part in a brief   general information session in the St. Pius X auditorium. Students will then  have the chance to visit the various exhibition/information booths staffed by representatives from English vocational centres, CEGEPS, universities,  McDonald’s, Yeh! Yogurt and Cafe   and some private business colleges.
