While there is all this talk in the news about major tech company layoffs, Surrey companies are still looking for talent.
Tech talent – meaning people with skills in information technology, computing science, engineering and biosciences – is in high demand across North America, and it’s no different in Surrey. Tech Talent Canada is a virtual platform that has become a credible source for tech talent seeking exciting opportunities across the country.
Tech Talent Canada’s job fairs are unique recruiting events that connect a city’s fastest growing companies with the top tech talent and hiring companies have the opportunity to showcase their employer brand and pitch to a crowd of skilled candidates on why they’re the best employer around.
The job fairs are known for bringing together thousands of job seekers with top-hiring companies. And during the pandemic, Tech Talent Canada pivoted to virtual job fair.
During the job fair, prospective employees will be able to meet representatives from Argus Control Systems, CTK Bio Canada, Coast Capital Savings, Delta Controls, Ensol Systems, FortisBC, Linus Tech Tips, Safe Software and Vaisala.
