Whether you are looking for work right now or would like the opportunity to see what is out there for the future, this event is for you.
This year, the Health Sciences Career Fair at the University of Manitoba Bannatyne Campus has aligned with the Canadian Student Health Research Forum (CSHRF) and is co-hosted by Career Services and the Health Sciences Graduate Students’ Association (HSGSA).
This Fair is an excellent opportunity for you to meet companies that employ students and graduates from faculties related to Health Sciences. Whether you are looking for work right now or would like the opportunity to see what is out there for the future, this event is for you.
Employers hiring for health related positions want to meet with students to share summer, part-time and permanent full-time employment opportunities and discuss what they look for in potential employees. Broaden your understanding about skills and attributes that will make you more employable in the health science and healthcare industry. This is a chance to better understand the labour market and start making important connections.
