Events & promotion

Conestoga is pleased to offer a variety of services designed to help your organization with its recruiting needs.

Virtual employer engagement opportunities

Whether you are looking to hire for the season or recruiting for a critical full-time position, we can help enhance your visibility, profile your brand, and position your organization as an employer of choice. Our virtual engagement opportunities include virtual employer information sessions and virtual employer networking events.

Virtual employer information session

Formally present information about your organization's corporate culture, recruitment processes, career pathways and employment opportunities to students via videoconference. Information sessions are promoted to students who are required to register for the session.

Virtual employer networking events

Meet students who want to connect with employers relevant to their field of study at one of our virtual networking events. Share information about your vision, career pathways, selection criteria and specific job opportunities in this informal virtual session that encourages students to network with you. Employer networking events are scheduled at various times throughout the year.
