Sask Polytech connects students with employers in Saskatoon
87 employers attend Saskatoon Campus career fair
February 11, 2015 - Saskatchewan Polytechnic is hosting its annual career fair in Saskatoon today. Students from the Schools of Academic and Career Education; Animal and BioSciences; Business; Construction; Health Sciences; Hospitality and Tourism; Human Services and Community Safety; Information and Communications Technology; Mining, Energy and Manufacturing; Nursing; and Transportation will have the opportunity to explore employment options with recruiting companies.
Career Fair 2015, presented by PotashCorp, was organized by the Saskatoon campus Student Employment Services (SES) office. An SES office at each of Saskatchewan Polytechnic's four campuses provides career information and job search and recruitment services to students and employers.
"Our career fair is a chance for employers from across Western Canada to showcase what they have to offer students," says Donna Nieman, employment services coordinator, Saskatchewan Polytechnic Saskatoon Campus. "The networking opportunity for both parties is invaluable."
While more than 6,500 students at the Saskatoon campus are expected to explore their employment options at the career fair, many students won't complete their training until April of this year.
