Career fairs continue online

As pandemic-related restrictions remain in place, employers are continuing to recruit university students this fall through online career fairs.

Each year, Career Services in Student Affairs hosts career fairs that provide opportunities for students of all years and faculties to connect with potential employers, find jobs, and continue to build confidence and skills for their futures.

While large scale in-person events are still not possible, the virtual fairs are proving to be a fun and interactive way for students to gather information and make connections.

Queen’s is now using the Brazen virtual event platform, enabling students to browse employer “booths” and speak with representatives from their organizations of interest.

Coming up next is the fall Engineering and Technology Fair – October 19 and 20, from 11:30am – 3:30pm ET. This fair is primarily for students who want to work in the engineering or technology sector, but all students are welcome to register and attend.

Career counsellors, resume coaches, and other student services staff will be attending the fair, in addition to the numerous employers who will be at “booths.” Students can access these supports and learn about career opportunities all in one place.

The upcoming fair will build on the success of the fall Career Fair, which ran on September 23 using Brazen as well. Students were able to upload their resumes for review by Career Services resume coaches, chat with employers 1-on-1, gather information about specific industries, and create meaningful interactions with exhibitors.

Students looking for additional career-related supports such as cover letter, interview preparation, or career advising can book remote or in-person appointments in MyCareer.
