Biannual Career Fairs

Join us for our large-scale career fairs held twice a year — one in the fall (September-October) and another in the spring (February-March). These fairs provide a dynamic platform for employers to showcase full-time, part-time, and volunteer opportunities. Engage with students and faculty from all programs, network with other organizations, and promote diverse career paths at these well-attended events.

Employer Panels and Labour Market Roundtables

At the request of our academic programs, we host Employer Panels and Labour Market Roundtables multiple times each semester. These sessions bring together 4-10 industry professionals to share insights and career expertise with our students. Participating in these events allows you to influence future professionals and gain fresh perspectives from emerging talent, while also sharing your own career experiences, advice, and information about your organization and profession.

We have organized these events for programs and industries such as Engineering, Computer Science, ITAS, Marketing, Geography, Geoscience, Graphic Design, and Non-Profits.

Classroom Visits and Information Sessions

We do our best to facilitate opportunities for our employer partners to interact directly with students through classroom visits and information sessions. Whether you're looking to recruit or share industry knowledge, we can facilitate these events for certain institutional partners or connect you with relevant faculty members or student groups.
