Hundreds of students turned out recently for the Career Networking Event organized by the Work Placement Services Office at Humber College’s School of applied Technology.
The fair gave students the opportunity to meet representatives from industries that hire from their programme which includes Civil Engineering, Mechanical, Automation, among other fields of study.
Students came dressed to impress, ready to meet potential employers and learn from them about the industry in which they one day plan to be a part of.
Students brought résumes, and, the all important positive attitude which marks a candidate for any job.
“I just really want a job in my field”, said Jonathan Diaz, a third year student studying Electrical Mechanical Engineering. “I’m looking for something that would highlight my strengths in programming and wiring, which is why I’m excited that Engineering Air is here as well as Siemens.”
Companies were impressed by the talent and professionalism demonstrated by Humber College students.
“The feedback back from employers was excellent,” says Lucille Conlon, one of the organizers for the event. “The representatives were very pleased by turn out of students and the skills they demonstrated.”
Many students such as Diaz got positive feedback from employers, and are keeping their fingers crossed for a call back.
The next career fair from the Work Placement Services of Applied Technology will be in March.
