[email protected] Connect Micro Career Fair

Looking for a new job or career? CEDEC, Global Excel Management, Townshippers’ Association’s Make Way for YOUth Project and Champlain College Lennoxville have partnered together to provide one of the most effective and free of charge micro career fairs.

Join us for this special edition of [email protected] Connect on Wednesday, October 7, at Champlain College, 2580 rue College, Sherbrooke, between 1pm and 7pm for a micro career fair combined with various workshops including how to build your résumé, learning about entrepreneurship as a career choice and more…

The small scale of this career fair, combined with the participation of local employers, educational institutions and organizations, enables jobseekers to have meaningful conversations about their futures. The evening will wrap up with the 3rd edition of [email protected] Connect, an informal networking activity that gives you the chance to speak with human resource recruiters in a more relaxed setting with no barriers.
