Off-campus events

Practice your networking skills at the largest career fair in the country!

Twice a year, we team up with Partnerships for Employment (P4E) along with other local universities to host the largest career and job fair events of its kind for students in the country.

These events take place right here in Waterloo, and are great opportunities to meet with employers, practice your networking skills and build your connections for the future. We'll even help you get there by organizing free shuttles from campus! 

Check the P4E website for specific dates and mark your calendars for these upcoming events:
