PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION–Public Service Participates in Canada’s Largest Virtual Career Fair
Government will showcase its public service careers at Canada’s largest virtual career fair on Oct. 6 and 7. The virtual fair is expected to attract up to 20,000 job seekers.
Participants will learn about opportunities available with the Government of Nova Scotia, how to apply, and can interact with recruiters via live chat throughout the entire event.
“We are always looking for new ways to encourage people to choose public service as a career,” said Public Service Commission Minister Tony Ince. “This year we had to get creative with our outreach and a virtual forum gives us the chance to connect with people nationally and internationally.”
Government has been focused on attracting and retaining younger workers, as well as equity-seeking candidates and underrepresented groups to diversify its public service.
