Online career events in January | Queen’s Gazette

Job search and networking opportunities for all online students continue this term as pandemic-related restrictions remain in place. Faculty and staff are encouraged to promote these activities to students who are exploring their career options.

Upcoming events this month, include:

Indigenous Student Job Networking Event – Wednesday, January 19, 4-6 p.m.

Indigenous students and recent Queens alumni can make connections with potential employers that can lead to short and long-term career opportunities, co-hosted by Queens Career Services and the Four Direction Indigenous Student Center and Indigenous Access to Engineering.

First piloted in November 2020, the event has been a success for both students and employers who recognize and value the contributions of Indigenous colleagues, employees and partners.

Students can register with MyCareer.

Engineering and Technology Exhibition – January 19-20

This two-part, two-day event is open to all students and recent graduates seeking internships and full-time jobs in the fields of engineering and technology.

On Wednesday, January 19, career services staff and resume coaches will be available to provide advice and support to help prepare participants for the meeting with employers the following day.

Students from all disciplines are encouraged to attend, with recruiters often looking for candidates other than those with engineering and technology backgrounds. Once registered, students can preview exhibitor booths and learn about the employers who will be attending, their organizations, and what jobs are available.

Students and recent graduates are invited to register below for one or both days:

Summer Opportunity Fair – January 26, 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.

This annual event is open to all students, and connects them with employers for summer work, including part-time jobs, internships, international experiences, and more.

Once registered, students can preview exhibitor booths. Some booths may not be fully equipped until after the event date approaches, and additional booths are added, as exhibitors continue to register.
