Career fairs and special events
Our responsibilities to our students extend beyond the classroom, and include assisting students with their career decisions and job search efforts. Our career fairs provide the opportunity for our students to communicate directly with employers like you about jobs and career opportunities, whether full-time, summer, experiential, or part-time. It also provides an excellent platform for employers to identify talented and skilled individuals ready to enter the workforce.
The Career & Leadership Development Centre hosts several career fairs throughout the year:
- Halifax Career Fair
- Agricultural Career Fair
- Summer Job Fair
