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!

We have employers from sectors including financial, healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, telecommunications, government, food and hospitality, oil and gas and much more.

Christine NhanTaking 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.

Julie FunkIt 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.
