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
Atlantic Canada's premiere recruiting event provides you with a venue to connect with recent graduates, co-op students and those exploring their future career opportunities. Visit the Halifax Career Fair website for more information.
Our annual Volunteer Fair takes place in September. This event provides your organization with a venue to promote rewarding volunteer opportunities to students interested in getting some experience, developing leadership skills and making a difference in the community.
Agricultural Career Fair
Held annually at the Agricultural Campus in Truro, this career fair is an exclusive recruitment event for employers looking to connect specifically with students from Dalhousie's Faculty of Agriculture for part and full-time opportunities, summer jobs and internships.
This year's fair took place on January 29, 2013 and featured 12 organizations. Next year's event details have yet to be determined. In the meantime, please direct any inquiries regarding recruiting from the Faculty of Agriculture to the Coordinator of Career Services, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Networking & Career Fair
Formerly the Summer Job Fair, this event is an integral part of the Dalhousie student recruitment season and features a standard career fair layout coupled with networking opportunities. We invite graduate and professional schools as well as organizations looking to fill part- and full-time jobs, internships, co-op roles, career opportunities and summer jobs to come and connect with Dal students in-person at this fair. This year's fair took place on February 5, 2013 and featured over 45 organizations. Next year's event details have yet to be determined.
