Career Fairs

Career fairs are prime opportunities for employers to meet face-to-face with interested and talented students and alumni. Some fairs, like Careers Day, are for all disciplines, while others are targeted towards certain faculties. Our fairs engage employers from all industries, all areas (e.g. corporate, government, not for profit), and of all sizes.

Students and Alumni 

Career fairs are a great opportunity to interact with a large number of employers who are all in the same place, on the same day. You will be able to:

  • Build your network of professional contacts.
  • Explore your career options and how you can put your degree to work.
  • Discuss current and future work opportunities with a variety of organizations.


Career fairs are a cost-effective way to gain access to bright employee prospects. We will take care of all the details like advertising, catering, and parking. You will be able to:

  • Share information with a large number of students and alumni who are interested in your organization.
  • Raise your brand awareness on campus.
  • Debunk myths about your industry or organization.
