Khalaf shared information such as the types of skills that companies are looking for and how to prepare for an interview. Afterwards, he took questions from students and surprised a lucky few with Facebook swag.

“I’m happy to be back to share my experience with students at UWindsor,” said Khalaf. “I’m hoping to see more UWin students at Facebook, building communities and bringing the world closer together!”

He accepted student resumés for internship, co-op, and full-time opportunities, adding that the company is in a hiring phase and that students should apply online as well.

“Events like these, hosted by UWindsor alumni, help current students visualize where their career path may lead after graduation.” said Judy Bornais, executive director of the Office of Experiential Learning.
