Connect with your future employers

Career Services hosts a wide range of events to help you connect with employers and learn more about your future career.

We encourage you to get started early — make connections, learn about industries and explore career paths. When you graduate from the University of Calgary, we want you to be equipped with all the skills and knowledge you need to make your career dreams a reality.

Attend a career fair

Meet hundreds of employers under one roof! Make connections and learn more about what each organization has to offer at career fairs throughout the year. No registration is required for current UCalgary students & alumni.

Features opportunities for continued learning through graduate studies and professional programs - expect to see a wide range of grad schools from across Canada, the USA and some abroad.

  • Did you know? If you come expecting to see Harvard or Princeton, you'll be disappointed - they don't recruit through fairs.

Career Fairs


Career Tip

Before attending a career fair, check the list of companies attending and research their services and opportunities, prepare questions that you can ask the employers.

Avoid asking, "Are you hiring?" or "Do you have a job?"

The goal of a fair is to learn about careers and companies. Any job openings can be found on their website or CareerLink.


Register for an Employer Networking Session

Employer networking sessions are one of the best ways to find out if an organization is the right fit for you.

They're a great way to meet recruiters and experts in your field of study, get an introduction to the company's culture, their hiring process and career opportunities.

Register early, as all Employer Networking sessions have limited spaces!

Career Tip

People generally like talking about their jobs and helping out.  Set up Information Interviews and if you don’t know how to then visit Career Services.
