How to register

  • Review the info sessions calendar to select a preferred date and time
  • To optimize attendance, we don't host concurrent sessions for both open and closed sessions that target the same student programs
  • Registration forms submitted requesting to host an info session in less than 10 business days, will not be accepted to book. We require at least 11 or more business days to support the booking logistics for info sessions, to ensure venue, catering, and audio-visual support, and to maximize exposure through our promotional channels

  • You'll be contacted by CECA after your registration form is submitted, to discuss your preferences and booking availability

Who can register

Info sessions serve employers hiring directly into their organization, and are exclusive events, representing one employer.

Third-party recruiter and temp agency registration policy

This policy applies to third-party recruiters and temp agencies who request to host an employer information session (EIS) at the University of Waterloo (UWaterloo).

Third-party recruiters are organizations or agencies recruiting students for employment on behalf of another organization. We do not permit third-party recruiters and temp agencies to host EIS with Co-operative Education & Career Action at UWaterloo. The only time this would be permitted is if a third-party recruiter or temp agency requests to host an EIS at UWaterloo under their own corporate identity, because they are hiring students directly into their organization. Participation in EIS is restricted to organizations representing the recruiting needs of the participating organization. Please be aware that there are serious implications for the collection and exchange of student information by third-party recruiters and temp agencies if they are acting on behalf of organizations they represent. This policy is in place out of fairness to the co-op and graduating recruiting process at UWaterloo.
