Communitech is staging another job fair for displaced Research in Motion workers today.  

This event is a bit different from the last one.

The parameters for participating companies have been expanded beyond just tech firms.  

Communitech’s Senior Director of Talent Networks, Karen Gallant says “We recognize that many former RIM employees have skill sets that will be transferable to other industries, so for this event we wanted to have companies outside of tech participating, such as manufacturing and wholesale.”

Dozens of companies will be attending today’s event, including Agfa Healthcare, Open Text, Teledyne Dalsa and Weston Bakeries.  

It is being held at the Bingemans Conference Centre in Kitchener from 3 to 7 pm.
