Sask Polytech connects students with employers in Moose Jaw
72 employers attend Moose Jaw career fair
February 4, 2015 - Saskatchewan Polytechnic is hosting its annual career fair in Moose Jaw today. Students from the Schools of Business; Construction; Human Services and Community Safety; Hospitality; Information and Communications Technology; Mining, Energy and Manufacturing; Natural Resources and Built Environment; and Transportation will have the opportunity to explore employment options with recruiting companies.
Career Fair 2015, presented by PotashCorp, was organized by the Moose Jaw 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.
"This is our 35th annual career fair," says Holli Bell, employment services coordinator, Saskatchewan Polytechnic Moose Jaw Campus. "Our career fair is a chance for employers from across Western Canada to showcase what they have to offer students. The networking opportunity for both parties is invaluable."
While more than 1,200 SIAST students at the Moose Jaw campus are expected to explore their employment options at the career fair, many students won't complete their training until April of this year.
A number of diploma programs offered at Sask Polytech's Moose Jaw campus have a co-operative education component. Bell says that students participating in the co-operative education component are in job interviews right now. Work terms and academic sessions are typically full time, and students receive a salary while on a work term.
