2016 was the first year in which MOSAIC hosted on-site workshops. Each workshop focused on a different employment sector and attracted capacity attendance. Click here for 2017 workshop information.
Feedback from previous employer participants indicates that the diversity of candidates at MOSAIC’s job fairs is what motivates them to return each year to recruit qualified job-seekers. They have told event organizers that they value the “international experience” and the overall quality of applicants who attend.
