Partnerships for Employment Job Fair is running Feb. 5
Communications, Public Affairs & Marketing
Laurier students and alumni are invited to connect with employers at the annual Partnerships for Employment (P4E) job fair, Wednesday, Feb. 5 from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at RIM Park, Waterloo. More than 155 organizations will be recruiting for a variety of positions, including full-time, part-time, co-op and summer work opportunities.
"The best thing about going to the job fair is that it's a one-stop shop for jobs - all the key people you need to contact are in one room," said Dan Allison (BA '09). Allison found his current job, a manager of employment relations for CGA, through the connections he built at the P4E job fair.
"The opportunity to build relationships with employers and with Laurier's Career Centre is invaluable in the long run."
Partnerships for Employment was created in 1994 as a collaborative effort between the career centres at the University of Guelph, University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College to serve students, alumni and employers through annual career and job fairs. The partnership between the four institutions provides a unique environment for sharing information and attracts about 4,000 students, which allows employers to fulfill their recruitment needs in one day.
Students and alumni from a degree/diploma program at Conestoga College, University of Guelph, University of Waterloo or Wilfrid Laurier University will be admitted free of charge with their student ID.
Free bus rides are available every half hour beginning at 9:30 a.m. from University Stadium on Laurier's Waterloo campus. A bus will depart from the Carnegie Building on Laurier's Brantford campus at 9 a.m. and leave RIM Park at 1 p.m. Brantford students are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat on the bus.
