This news post is more than one year old and has been retained for archive purposes. The information below may no longer be relevant.

All Carleton students and new graduates are invited to attend the Virtual Fall Career Fair on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Career Fair will give you the opportunity to:

  • Chat with recruiters and professionals one-on-one. Meetings will take place as speed-networking-style conversations (about 10 minutes). This is done primarily through text chat, though some employers may use audio or video calls.
  • Explore full-time, part-time and co-op opportunities and browse current job openings. Employers are encouraged to post job postings on their virtual booths so attendees can familiarize themselves with the opportunities that are available.
  • Discover a range of organizations to see if you would be a good fit now or in the future. View the list of attending employers alphabetically or by program/degree. More employers will be added regularly in the lead up to the fair.
  • Practise your networking skills, including honing your elevator pitch (in text and verbally) and identifying organizations that interest you. Career Fairs are an opportunity to grow your contacts and knowledge of employers.

Register today by visiting the Virtual Fall Career Fair website.
