Get Experience Fair

Get Experience Fair


Wednesday, September 13, 2017
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.

At the fair, you'll be able to learn about ways to gain experience through:

  • Volunteer programs and Internships
  • On-campus and Work-Study jobs
  • Research Experience
  • International options

NOTE: Valid T-Card required for entry. Only U of T students and recent graduates (within two years of graduation) are invited to attend.

Did you know: 82% of employers value volunteer work just as much as paid work?
The Get Experience Fair is your chance to connect in-person with organizations at which you can gain new skills and experience to add to your resume.

Have some experience but not the right kind?
Have no experience?
Not sure what you need?
Need more of the right skills?

Then look for people wearing this at the fair:
