Host & Attend Recruitment Events

Throughout the year, Management Career Services organizes various recruitment initiatives and events. These are great opportunities for you to promote your organization and meet our students before your hiring process begins. Compliment your recruiting strategy by participating or hosting a targeted event on Dalhousie campus.   

Information Sessions

Target students by hosting an information session in our state of the art, Kenneth C. Rowe Management Building. Share insights about your business and career opportunities and recruit top talent - all at no cost to you! The majority of employers host information sessions in the months of September, October and January, however this service is available to you year-round. Contact mcs@dal.ca to start the planning process.
