January 09, 2015

Loyalist College is pleased to invite current students, alumni, and employers to the Annual Career Fair on Thursday, February 5 from 10 am to 1 pm in the Gymnasium of the Kente Building. Regional and national employers will be available to meet with students and alumni. They represent business and industry sectors directly related to the program training Loyalist students receive.

“Now in its 18th year, the Career Fair is highly anticipated for the networking opportunities it offers both employers and prospective employees,” said Loyalist College President and CEO Maureen Piercy. “Many of the employers return each year with potential full-time and part-time, as well as summer and temporary positions. Their ongoing involvement highlights the success of the event, which is organized by our Career Centre to support students and alumni in their career exploration, planning, and development.”

“Our goal is to provide students and graduates with access to employers who are hiring in their field,” said Lyndsay Kerik, Employment and Career Advisor. “We encourage employers who have positions available and are seeking well trained qualified applicants to attend the Fair to meet our students and graduates.”

The Loyalist College Career Centre offers everything from computers and Internet access for conducting job searches to assistance with résumé and cover letter creation. Career advisors work one-on-one with alumni and current students to help them prepare for part-time employment or a career. They also work within the classroom, helping students to complete a Career Development Certificate, which consists of four modules. One of the most popular programs provided through the Centre helps to hone an individual’s interview skills through mock interviews, customized for the individual’s program of study. Other services include the myCareer Portal, an online job posting service.
