The Great Hall in Somerville House (Maps & Directions)
All students at Western are welcome to attend
There is no expectation for you to accept resumes or applications at the Career Directions Fair but you may choose to do so. Many exhibitors have returned year after year to recruit and raise awareness in their field. By attending, you have an opportunity to meet and talk to students and to promote the benefits of your organization.
We understand from our students that many want to explore their options in the private and public sectors so it is important they understand what you are looking for. It is also important for students to understand the education needed for careers in the various areas of health. We promote this event to them as an opportunity to explore the credentials they would need.
There is no registration fee for participating in this event. Please register using the online form below. Because space is limited it is advised that exhibitors register early.
