Opportunities Fairs 2020

The Opportunities fairs are cancelled due to the pandemic. Dates will be rescheduled for 2021. 

The Co-op Office and Student Career Services will be hosting two separate opportunities fairs in September 2020. The first fair will focus on accounting-related roles and the second day will focus on IT/computing-related roles.  This is an opportunity for employers who are looking to hire co-op, summer, or new graduate students within an accounting and/or IT/computing-related role to recruit StFX students.  Light refreshments will be available to our employer attendees. Employers can attend one or both events.
