Fanshawe's career fairs routinely provide a great opportunity for employers to meet potential employees, and to build brand awareness with the next generation of clients and consumers. For students, it serves as an opportunity to showcase their skills and establish the relationships that they will need when they enter the workforce.

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!”

- Fanshawe College will defer all in-person classes scheduled for the summer semester and intends to offer a blended delivery of programs in the fall.
- Prospective students and their families are invited to experience Fanshawe virtually from their own homes.
