Summer Fair

2017 Summer Fair


What are YOU doing this summer?

If you’re planning to work tduring the summer, it’s not too early to start looking! Many employers hire their summer staff as early as February - if you wait until the end of term, you may end up missing out on some of the best jobs our region has to offer.

The Summer Fair is your chance to meet with employers and learn all about great opportunities in the job market. The Fair features employers from a range of sectors. From government to hospitality, customer service to summer camps, there’s something for everyone, whether it’s your first year or your graduating year.

The Summer Fair is open to current students from all Nova Scotia universities, and is FREE to attend. Valid student IDs are usually required for entry. Direct transportation to and from the Loyola Building and Mount Saint Vincent University is provided for all Mount students (see Getting There for shuttle bus schedule).

Ready to go? Visit the ‘Exhibitors’ page and find out who attended, then visit their websites to learn more about each organization. Be sure to check back often, as we’ll be updating our list of exhibitors on a regular basis.

Some organizations are even accepting applications before the Fair – take a look at the “Summer” job postings online at the SMU Student Employment Centre or the Mount Saint Vincent University Career Services to review application procedures, then visit your preferred employers at the Fair.
