Career fair

Garett Macdonald, left, of Rainy River Resources tried out a heavy machinery simulator at the Confederation College booth this morning during the first-annual Career Fair and Training Expo hosted by NCDS, while Steve Youden (a recent graduate of the paramedic program and a student employee at the college) looked on. Macdonald was interested in the program because Rainy River Resources, which is pursing a gold mine in the district, will be looking for a similar program to help train miners. The fair, which runs until 7 p.m. today at the Memorial Sports Centre, features more than 70 booths and exhibitors.
