A job fair has been organized by the call centre industry, less than one week after Dell announced it would be shutting down its Ottawa call centre.

The job fair will be held May 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Scotiabank Place.

Those who have already been laid off or face losing their jobs at a call centre operation will have a chance to talk to companies who are hiring.

It's expected there will be more than two dozen firms interested in hiring. 

Companies interested in attending must fill out an online registration form.
