Every year employers and educational recruiters visit campus because they are interested in meeting you!
Meet them at our Employer Information Sessions or Graduate/Professional School Information Sessions occurring from September to April, Monday – Thursday. These sessions typically take place midday, or in the early evening.
Meet and network with employers/recruiters.
Find out if the company/school is a fit for you.
Show recruiters that you are a good fit for their organization/school.
Beat The Competition:
Make a lasting impression on the recruiter so they will remember you when your application comes in.
Leave the recruiter with a great impression of you and your level of professionalism.
Show Recruiters That You Are The Strongest Candidate:
Research in advance so that you are knowledgeable.
Bring a list of questions to show what you’ve learned about the company/school.
Attend Success Centre workshops to find out about making your resume, cover letter, CV, portfolio, writing sample, and other application documents stand out in a crowd of job seekers.
Drop in to Western's Employment Resource Centre for networking, resume, and cover letter tips.
Make an appointment with a Career Counsellor for personalized help by calling 519-661-3559 or visiting us in person.
Information Session Etiquette:
Always act professionally at these sessions. Every person you encounter during each session (including your peers) could affect you both positively and negatively in your recruitment process.
Dress appropriately: wear semi-formal (or business casual) to demonstrate your professionalism. Do not wear jeans.
Always arrive on time.
If you register for one of these sessions, please come! We inform recruiters of the number of registrants the day before their session. Failure to attend without notification will not only reflect negatively on you, but also the reputation of your academic program, faculty, and Western as a whole.
If you find yourself unable to attend a session you have signed up for, please de-register yourself in CareerCentral.
