Montreal - Tuesday, October 2, 2018

More than 2,000  Secondary V students will attend the 18th annual English Montreal School Board (EMSB) Career Fair on Wednesday, October 17 and Thursday,  October 18 at St. Pius X Career Centre in Ahuntsic (9955 Papineau).  Jack Dym of Pipe and Piling Supplies Ltd. and RBC Royal Bank are the event’s title sponsors.

Several on air personalities from the media will be on hand to talk to students about careers in this field and serve as guest emcee: Sabrina Marandola from CBC, Catherine Verdon-Diamond from Breakfast TV, Christine Long from CTV, Tim Sargeant from Global TV and Shaun McMahon from The Beat 92.5 FM.  

Two RBC Olympic athletes will be on hand to talk to students: Jacqueline Simoneau, a two-time Pan American Gold medal winner who placed seventh in her first Olympics at the Rio 2016 Games in Synchronized Swimming; and Sandrine  Mainville,  one of Canada’s most reliable relay swimmers,  who won a bronze medal in Rio and a gold and silver at the  2015 Pan Am Games.

From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on October 17, 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 in a one-stop shopping experience. There is no charge and free parking.    

Harriet Cohen from EMSB Adult Education and Vocational Services is the 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 and some private business colleges.
