Recruitment events are never just about finding a job or filling a position. Whether it’s a career fair, employer seminar or networking event, for our Crozier team members and those they reach out to, it’s all about starting a conversation.
By sharing their experiences and insights and actively listening as students and recent grads explore how to translate skills and goals into purposeful careers – those face-to-face discussions help shape opportunities for all of us.
In late January and early February, Crozier staffers participated in a series of university events including an Information Session at McMaster University, an Engineering Career Night at the University of Guelph and Partnerships for Employment (a collaborative fair for students and alumni from the University of Waterloo, the University of Guelph, Wilfrid Laurier University and Conestoga College). We were impressed by the engaged and sharply talented young people we had the opportunity to meet.
Long before the sessions closed and the booths were packed away, we knew many of these conversations would be continuing as these student engineers and technicians begin to map out their futures and the face of things to come in this industry…..
