Canada's apparel landscape is changing more rapidly than ever. Employers in today's industry are blending tradition with innovation by seeking new hires armed with skills in business and communication, social media, digital marketing, industrial design and more. This presents a great opportunity for those who are entering the industry for the first time to put their skills to the test in new and challenging ways. Candidates will have the opportunity to explore an array of employment opportunities including sales strategy, digital merchandising, graphic design, hardware engineering, design, account management and more. It's also a great space for budding entrepreneurs to network with industry stakeholders.
We are currently calling all interested fashion/apparel designers, manufacturers and retailers, recruiters, post-secondary schools (and their graduating students/alumni), HR consultants and service providers to contact us as soon as possible if you would like to be an exhibitor at the Apparel and Fashion Career Fair and Expo.
Employers can take advantage of this great opportunity to identify new and future employees, market their company as an employer of choice and network with industry partners.
The Canadian Apparel Federation is working with colleges, universities and art schools to identify this opportunity to their current students and recent graduates. We are also working with a wide range of industry organizations (including incubators and promoters) and have an active promotional campaign in place through social and traditional media.
We hope to build on the success of our sister organization, Apparel Quebec, who held a similar event in Montreal that was met with great success. We look forward to bringing this concept to Toronto for the first time and connecting employers with the industry's top talent.
