Events & Promotion

Conestoga offers a variety of opportunities to promote your organization to students for recruitment purposes.

Employer Showcase

Promote employment opportunities within your organization with a table-top display or booth in a high-traffic area. This no-cost informal approach is an excellent way to engage and network with students.

Employer Information Session

These special events are primarily for larger employers who recruit from a number of different programs and wish to formally present information about their organization to interested students. The Co-op office will work closely with you to plan an appropriate date, time and location based on class schedules and your availability to ensure the best turnout. These free-of-charge events are promoted to students who are required to register for the session. Provision of refreshments though college catering is suggested.
