Career Fairs

Career fairs are events organized by the Career Planning Service, often together with faculty associations and student groups, and provide an excellent opportunity for students to meet with company representatives from a variety of industries. Career fairs allow you to gather information on companies, find out about entry level positions and career paths, and develop employer contact to enhance your job search. Be prepared to collect company literature and business cards, and distribute your CV. Keep in mind that this is a forum where both future employees and employers can network and explore job opportunities in today's fields.


Who should participate

Whether you are graduating this year or just starting your first semester at McGill, now is the best time to start participating at career fairs. It is your opportunity to gather insight to the industry, learn about a company’s hiring practices, find out about their training programs, and impress them with your skills and abilities. Therefore, if you think you are ready to make an impression, and are focused on learning more about your employment opportunities, career fairs are the place for you. Remember, it is never too early to start networking.
