Fanshawe’s annual Career Fair is a great opportunity for employers to engage with potential employees as well as build brand awareness with local consumers. The fair is typically held in late March with communications to participating organizations starting in November.
Registration fees are based on the event format (virtual vs. hybrid vs. in-person). The fair is open to all students and alumni and is multi-disciplinary across all academic areas. Previous events have been attended by upwards of 1,500 students (including virtual formats). Visit the Career Fair webpage for more information.
Additional Fairs and Networking Opportunities
In addition to our annual Career Fair, we also feature smaller fairs and networking opportunities that are typically industry or faculty-specific. We hold a Landscape job fair every year leading into the summer season and have also held fairs specifically for part-time and Co-op positions. The Career Services team is available to support the planning and execution of student networking events. There may be a cost associated with this based on event delivery (virtual vs. in-person) and platform. Visit our events page for a list of upcoming fairs or networking opportunities.
The InSPIRE Mentoring program offers students and recent grads the opportunity to create pathways to career connections by developing networking skills, sharing experiences, and gaining industry knowledge. Employers, business owners, alumni and community members are invited to become involved as mentors in a variety of formats within the pillars of the program. For more information and to register as a mentor visit the InSPIRE webpage.
Table displays can be set up around the college to allow employers to speak with students in an informal environment. These events are posted on our events calendar and social media, however, most conversations are garnered via hallway foot traffic. Tables are typically stationed in our main hallway, but can be moved around the campus based on academic service areas. We suggest table displays take place mid-week as Mondays and Fridays are often less busy. We require two weeks' notice for table displays and the cost for this service is $30 (plus HST).
*This event is on hold due to COIVD-19.
Targetting students in a specific academic area is a great way to ensure that their skillset and career aspirations align with your organization or industry. This option requires you to speak directly to the program coordinator that you are interested in working with. We cannot guarantee you class time, however, we are happy to connect you to the program coordinator to arrange a visit. There is no cost associated with classroom visits.
*Classroom visits are being offered virtually until further notice.
Info sessions are an opportunity for employers to meet with students who have shown interest in their organization or industry. Employers are expected to conduct preliminary outreach activities to gauge student interest. Co-branded promotional material is provided to share on social media channels two weeks in advance of the info session. Our team also coordinates with academic areas to ensure event times do not conflict with academic scheduling. The cost for this event is $50 (plus HST).
If you are promoting a particular job or event, we are happy to share it on our social media channels. Creative elements (photo/video) must be supplied. There is no cost associated with this.
Looking to grow your team? Post your employment opportunities to our job board, which is open to all current students and alumni. Please visit our Jobsite to register as a new employer. There is no cost to register for the Jobsite or to post employment opportunities to the site.
