Virtual Career Fair 2022
Fanshawe's career fairs provide great opportunities for both students and employers. Some students will be looking for Co-ops or part-time/summer employment, while those closer to graduation are able to connect with employers in their field of study and grow their networks. Employers are able to meet future employees and also build brand awareness with the next generation of clients and consumers.
Date: Friday, March 4, 2022
Time: 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Where: Hosted online via Pheedloop.
While this is a virtual event, students are expected to be dressed in appropriate business attire and should be prepared to share a digital version of their resume with employers. Resumes must be in PDF format and smaller than 5 MB to be uploaded.

Career Fair success story
"I wanted to let you know that I had success finding a full-time job through the Fanshawe Career Fair in 2018. I was able to connect and network with McConville Omni, a local insurance brokerage. I met their team and then connected after the fair and I just accepted a career as an Operations and Marketing Specialist.
Events like this are extremely beneficial to students. Getting to meet someone one-on-one really increases the chance of converting into a career. Thank you for putting on the event and I encourage greater business participation at future events, if possible!”
