These are the questions that haunted me, until I learned that Partners for Employment (P4E) would still be hosting their annual career fair, only this time virtually.

The office landscape has changed dramatically in the last few months. Many University of Waterloo co-op students were on their work term when the pandemic hit in March and needed to quickly adapt to a new world. Without hesitation, employers adjusted operations from working in-person to a virtual world. At the same time, many found ways to provide the support and peace-of-mind that co-op students needed to help adjust.
