Top Questions: Accounting & Finance Career Fair

Who can go to the fair?

Current Saint Mary's University students and recent graduates from all faculties (Arts, Science, and Commerce) and invited to attend. 

Why attend the fair?

The Career Fair is an excellent opportunity to network with representatives about opportunities within their organizations, as well as the type of skills, experience, and education required for these positions. At the Career Fair, each employer will have a booth so you can talk to their representatives about their company.  During the information sessions, employers will present more information to students about their company and may also provide more detail on positions available and how to apply.  The reception allows a more relaxed opportunity to chat with employers (including some recent graduates), faculty, and other students.

Do students need to register for this event?

Yes, however, there is no cost for students to attend the Career Fair on Monday. 

Where is the fair?

The fair will be virtual. 

What do I talk about?

What happens after the fair?
