Vancouver’s biggest career fair for the digital, entertainment and interactive industries is inviting thousands of jobseekers to meet potential employers later in May.

Hosted by the Vancouver Economic Commission and founded by the Visual Effects Society, the free career fair will take place at Vancouver Convention Centre West on May 14.

Among the 30 companies hiring are visual effects company Sony Pictures Image Works, video game makers Electronic Arts, and animators Bardel Entertainment.

More than 1,500 of Vancouver’s best and brightest jobseeking animators, designers, developers, and digital artists are expected to show up.

Last year, 1,400 jobseekers attended and survey results showed the average company hired two people they met at the career fair.
