Recruiting Events

For several years, top Canadian employers have come to Dalhousie’s Faculty of Management to recruit top talent. These employers regularly advertise and visit campus with the sole purpose of attracting you as a prospective employee. 

Starting in September and ending in mid-November, the MCS Career Fest encompasses events such as employer information sessions, skill-building workshops, special off-campus career events, networking & recrutiment events, and more! Full event details and registration can be found on the myCareer Events Calendar as early as late July.

Employer information sessions

Our on-campus information sessions are the most traditional of recruiting events. Recruiters will host 30–90 minute sessions to speak about their organization and upcoming opportunities and to mingle with potential applicants. Attending an information session is a great way for you to learn about employment opportunities, meet hiring representatives and make a great first impression. 

The fall is a popular time for employers and recruiters from all industries to come on campus and network with students through Information Sessions.  Come to the sessions dressed to impress and prepared to engage with key employer representatives.

Visit the myCareer events calendar to see which employers are coming on campus, or contact your Career and Recruitment Specialist if you have questions about industry-specific sessions.
