Edmonton NAIT Annual Career Fair

NAIT's annual Career Fair to play host to 83 employers

WHAT: More than 80 employers will be on NAIT main campus in hopes of meeting current students who would be a great fit once the economy rebounds and students graduate. Employers who will have exhibits on site come from all sectors of the economy including: Nexen, Imperial Oil Strathcona Refinery, Weyerhaeuser, Agrium, the RCMP, ATB, Sherritt, Telus, PCL, and the Edmonton Flying Club. Some of the employers, such as the Ledcor Group, will be actively recruiting at the career fair. The event is so important to Ledcor, the company’s VP of Field Operations for the LTS Group – Jim Hallworth -  will be on site in the morning to meet prospective employees.

WHERE/WHEN: Tuesday, January 26, 2010
NAIT Main Campus
9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. – Gym, South Lobby and North Lobby

WHY: The Career Fair is an important networking opportunity for students, who are given some quick tips on how to impress employers on site. NAIT advisors help students master the art of the 15-second pitch – how to sell yourself, your skills, and your abilities in the time it takes to ride an elevator. When learning how to master this skill, students are taught some important lessons: sound conversational, have a strong voice, remember to smile and make an effort to be mindful of the recruiter’s tone of voice and facial expressions to make sure you are still holding her attention. Students are also encouraged to research potential employers ahead of time, have a targeted resume, choose appropriate attire and get employers’ business cards for follow-up conversations.
