will be hosting its annual career fair on Wednesday, March 7, and
organizer So Jeon of the UFV Career Centre is inviting students to
expand their horizons when thinking about potential employers.
"We really want students to visit a variety of companies and
organizations as they tour the booths and displays," she notes.
"Regardless of what you are studying, you will be surprised by the
various career paths available in different companies that may
require your skills. The research and critical thinking skills you
gain in your studies are transferable to a number of fields."
These are tough economic times and it's harder to get a job than it
used to be, but Jeon says that makes it even more important to come
out and network at the Career Fair.
"You never know where your next summer job or your first career job
will come from. The more connections you make, the more you get your
name and resume out there, the better the chances that you'll
succeed in finding the right fit for you."
The Career Fair runs in the UFV Envision Athletic Centre from 2 to 6
pm on Wed, March 7. Members of the public and UFV alumni are invited
to attend. Admission is free.
Participants are also invited to take part in special Ignite Your
Interview Skills one-on-one mock interview sessions from 2:30 to 5
Current students who register for the Career Fair ahead of time have
the chance to win an iPad.
