ASE Career Fair returns in-person
When: Tuesday, October 4 | 2:30 – 6:30 p.m.
Where: Multipurpose Room, UMSU University Centre (2nd floor)
Connect with employers seeking to recruit UM students for summer and part-time positions, and future graduates for full-time employment. Learn about current and upcoming career opportunities with some of the largest employers in Manitoba, such as McCain Foods, Bayer, Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters, KGS group and Richardson International.
Whether you are looking for a job or just getting a sense of what’s out there in the world of work, attending a career fair is a great opportunity to explore the connections between your degree, skills and experiences and potential career goals or direction.
For example, talking with employers and industry partners gives you a sense of the skills and competencies employers in particular fields are looking for now and in the future. Having these conversations can help you choose courses and experiences that will help you build the skills and competencies required for your field of interest. Visit the Experiential Catalogue to browse and search for experiential learning courses that help you develop these skills, competencies and experiences through hands-on and real-world learning.
Lastly, keep in mind that employers at the ASE Career Fair will be looking for students to fill summer, part-time and new graduate full-time positions. If you are looking for employment, bring multiple copies of your resume and cover letter to give to employers. Career Services is providing Career Fair Preparation workshops next week to help students prepare for this yearly event. Visit UM Connect for workshop dates, details and registration. Career Services also provides online employment resources including the Resume Learning Centre which educates students on resumé and cover letter development and provides samples. After review of the resources, students can receive personalized support by using the online Support Request Form.
The 2022 ASE Career Fair is a collaboration among UM Career Services, the Faculty of Agriculture Student Organization (FASO) and the University of Manitoba Engineering Society (UMES). All UM students are welcomed and encouraged to take advantage of this free, drop-in event!
