Job Fair to be Held Wednesday

U of G, along with the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College, is sponsoring a Job Fair Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at RIM Park in Waterloo.

The annual event is the largest post-secondary job fair of its kind in Canada. The collaborative effort is expected to attract more than 4,000 students, graduates and alumni and more than 180 employers from across Ontario as well as Québec, British Columbia, Alberta and the United States.

Sponsored by Partnerships for Employment, which represents the area’s four post-secondary institutions, the fair features employers from virtually ever sector, including agribusiness, financial services, manufacturing, police services, government and information technology. Employers are looking to hire students from all disciplines for summer, permanent, contract, co-op and/or part-time opportunities.

The four post-secondary institutions were the first in Canada to jointly offer an annual job fair, which started in 1994. Since then, other educational institutions have introduced similar events.
