An opportunity to meet with employers
November 12, 2018
King’s will be getting into the spirit of Canada Career Month by holding the first-ever school-wide Career Fair on November 20, 2018 in the Student Life Centre.
“This is a great opportunity for students to engage with employers, demonstrate their skills and get face-time with employers,” Joe Henry, Dean of Students, says.
Over 20 local and area employers will be in attendance, telling students about opportunities within their organizations. The London Economic Development Corporation, with whom King’s has a strong partnership with, will also be on campus discussing employment opportunities that exist in London.
“We know our students want access to employers as part of their career transition,” Henry says. Henry says hosting a career fair is “part of the next step in the evolution of employment support we want to provide to our students.”
While programs at King’s have had job fairs in the past, this will be the first general career fair open to all students to be held.
Henry explains that while the job fair is a chance for students to meet with employers regarding opportunities for, it is also a chance to employers to find out more about King’s. “This is going to allow King’s to engage with employers about what King’s graduates will bring to the table,” Henry says.
The King’s Career Fair will be held in partnership with the Student Success Centre at Western.
The Career Fair will be open to all King’s students, especially 3rd and 4th – year students. In addition, King’s graduates from within the past year will also be able to access the Career Fair.
