Technology Career Fair connects Sask Polytech students with employers

26 employers attended specialized technology-based career fair

November 2, 2016 – Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s fourth annual Technology Career Fair was held at the Moose Jaw campus today. Employers connected with more than 500 students in technology-based programs offered from the Schools of Construction; Information and Communications Technology; Mining, Energy and Manufacturing; and Natural Resources and Built Environment.

Sask Polytech knows the value of early connections between students and employers. Each campus has a Student Employment Services office that provides a variety of career information and job connection services for students and employers.
