Job fair highlights opportunities for engineering students

More than 380 students came out to speak with employers from varying sectors of the engineering industry at the 2023 Engineering Job Fair in the Centre for Engineering Innovation on April 21.

Hosted by the Office of Career Development and Experiential Learning (CDEL) and the Faculty of Engineering, the event helped to connect future grads to prospective employers from the automotive, manufacturing, aerospace, and construction industries, among others.

CDEL held workshops and presentations ahead of the fair on such topics as resumé writing, interview strategies, and tips on professionalism and how to make a positive impression on employers.

“We were thrilled to see so many students eager to connect with employers and learn firsthand about the skills and qualities they value in potential hires,” says Krista Kelly, manager of career development and experiential learning. “Our goal was to provide students with the tools they need to succeed in their job search and prepare them to make a lasting impression on prospective employers in their chosen field.”

Employers were invited to connect with undergraduate and master’s students, as well as new alumni with concentrations in civil, electrical, environment, industrial, or mechanical engineering.
