Ottawa’s tech sector is teeming with talent – want to be a part of it? Halogen hosts job fair Wednesday

She has over 15 years experience in the talent management industry both in Europe and North America.

The research, innovation and talent pool that is fostered and growing in Ottawa is pretty amazing. It’s a huge part of what makes Ottawa a great city to work, live and play.

Ottawa’s technology sector alone is home to some 1,800 companies, employing 80,000 people. And despite the challenging economy in many market segments, recent reports show that Ottawa’s tech sector maintains steady growth. It’s refreshing to hear that Mayor Watson believes there’s plenty of hope for Ottawa’s economy, thanks to tech.

I’m fortunate enough to lead the HR team at a local tech company that has been ranked one of Canada’s top 50 Small and Medium Sized Employers for three years running, and that’s known worldwide as a market leader in talent management software. The Halogen team includes some of the best and brightest talent in the regions we work in. It’s their commitment, bias to action, and focus on the customer that have made us a market leader in our industry, and why we’ve experienced tremendous growth year over year.

Halogen is looking to hire at least 50 new employees over the next year to help us continue to deliver on our commitment to a World Class Customer Experience. That’s why we’re hosting a Career Fair today, October 26, to share more information on the company and its employment opportunities with local talent.

  • Who: Halogen Software, one of Canada’s Top Employers
  • What:  Career Fair to help the company find the best and brightest people as it expands its sales, marketing, product development, finance and several other groups on the company.
  • When: Wednesday October 26, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. (Special presentation by our CEO Paul Loucks at 5:30 p.m.)
