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 (last Wednesday in September, annually) and a Job Fair (first Wednesday in February, annually).
Both events are the largest of their kind in the country! Over 170+ organizations participate, and over 3,000 students attend – we bus our interested students to the event.
89% of employers that 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.
