Acsenda School of Management successfully held its 2017 Career Fair last November 16. The outpouring of warmth, curiosity, and excitement among the students and the employers led to active discussions on career opportunities and job requirements.
Representatives from Marriott Hotels of Canada, JW Marriott, Sun Life Financial, and Bench actively participated and reached out to Acsenda students. Company goals, products and services were presented to the Acsenda community through a series of one-on-one discussions. Hiring agency Recruiting in Motion also took part in the event touching base with the school’s aspiring professionals.
Graduating students eagerly inquired about job openings and internship programmes. It was a fantastic opportunity to assess and match student goals with varied career paths offered by participating employers. Several tips on certain job requirements were given which the students found relevant.
Non-graduating students were just as enlightened by the event. Immersing themselves in the career talks to get a sense of what lay ahead for them. It was a healthy extra-curricular exercise to be able to draw connections between an ongoing undergraduate degree and future career choices.
Employers were impressed by the interest and enthusiasm of Acsenda students. They have openly expressed excitement to work with more Acsenda graduates in the future, especially that a number of the school’s alumni are already working with them.
