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. Complement your recruiting strategy by participating in or hosting a targeted event on Dalhousie's campus.
Target students by hosting an information session virtually or 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 email@example.com to start the planning process.
