Fairs

Career and Job Fairs

Each year, in conjunction with the University of Waterloo, University of Guelph and Conestoga College, the Laurier Career Centre hosts two fairs for our students and alumni. The fairs are consistently the largest in the country.

For other information about the fairs, including lists of participating organizations and how to prepare for the fairs, visit www.partners4employment.ca

You can also attend a "Make the Most of Career/Job Fair" workshop for tips on effectively networking at Career/Job Fair.

About Job Fair

Job Fair, held each February, has participating organizations recruiting for full-time, contract, summer, co-op and part-time job openings. The importance of attending Job Fair cannot be overstated. It provides students and alumni with the chance to network with potential employers to learn more about their organizations and to apply for jobs on-site.

Further Education Fair

The Further Education Fair is held in October and is a valuable opportunity to learn about possible graduate programs as well as admission requirements and application procedures for a range of graduate and post-degree college programs. Participating programs include graduate schools, colleges, teacher education, law, international and health.

Why Attend? This is your opportunity to speak with representatives from programs or schools you are considering. The event is great for students researching their options for a year or two in the future as well as for those applying this year. Learn about program choices, admission requirements and tips for successful applications. Students who have attended in the past talk about how they have learned information about the programs that goes beyond what was available on the school's website. Don't miss this chance to talk to the schools!

Diversity and Inclusion Job Fair

The Career Centre hosts an annual Diversity and Inclusion Job Fair for students and alumni. This is an opportunity to connect with employers to learn about their organizations, employment opportunities and their commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. All students and alumni are invited to attend and those who identify as 2SLGBTQI+, Indigenous, Black, person of colour, and person with disabilities are encouraged to attend.

On-Campus Student Job and Volunteer Fairs

The On-Campus Student Job and Volunteer Fairs are held in January and February. Learn about a variety of convenient on-campus positions, both paid and unpaid, that will be available during the following summer and academic year.

Summer Job Fair
