Hosted by BCjobs.ca in partnership with BC Tech and Discovery Foundation, the Career Experts series of events is aimed at preparing candidates to make their best impressions at Talent Day and as they move forward with their careers in tech.

We’ll be having a discussion with local HR and recruitment experts in tech to learn more about non-linear career paths. Learn how to move up (or across) in a company, how these paths can help you find your dream job, and how this can be a useful career strategy - especially if you’re new to tech, a new immigrant, or looking for a new challenge!
