Partnerships for Employment (P4E) is a partnership between the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Guelph and Conestoga College. P4E hosts two events per year: a Career Fair (the final Wednesday in September, annually) and a Job Fair (the first Wednesday in February, annually).
With 200+ organizations participate and 3,000+ students attending each event, they are the largest of their kind in the country!

89% of employers who completed the survey stated they will be interviewing students they met at Career Fair
Taking a look around the crowd, I was extremely motivated to take the chance and talk to different employers. Surprisingly, it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. All the employers I interacted with were extremely approachable and more than happy to talk to me about their business and possible job opportunities.

It was a productive way to spend my morning and afternoon, talking to a variety of employers all in one place. I received a lot of information about different companies and now I need to get to work doing my own career research, looking at job postings and maintaining these networks by keeping up to date with news and developments from companies.
