Attended Career Fair at Ted Rogers School of Management on 22nd September, 2011

Attended the career fair at Ryerson University. It was a great experience. Companies that were on campus for information sessions as well as hiring were more tha 20. But some of them that I can mention are:

  • TD Canada trust
  • Nielson (Marketing research company)
  • KPMG
  • Target Corporation
  • Winners
  • Loblaws
  • Canadian Tire
  • Staples
  • CGI
  • CMA
  • Money Mart
  • Quantum Canada
  • Xerox
and so on. I dropped off my resumes with many of these companies. It was good to have a discussion with the representatives of these companies and get a feel of what they have to offer. KNowledge of the job market is extremely essential and it is only possible by personal on-on-one exposure to a variety of employers and recruiters. I do not think that only arm chair tactics / strategy (surfing the web sitting at home) are always enough to get you jobs. Cheers!
