Meet employers, make an impression, get the job

There are many ways to network and make an impression with employers throughout the year. Be prepared to meet virtually with employers through lunch and learns, presentations and interviews in a whole new way. Planning virtual career fairs and events will be the new norm.

Save the Date - Virtual Career Fair

Wednesday March 31,  9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us for an exclusive opportunity!   

This year students will attend virtually to network with employers in their fields of study and secure job opportunities for after graduation. Employers will attend Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Virtual career fair to recruit, screen and hire qualified and skilled students and graduates. 

Registration information and additional details will be posted in January 2021.

  • View the list of attending companies.
  • Research the companies that you are interested in and the positions offered online.
