The purpose and goal of the Career Directions Fair is to provide exhibitors and students with the opportunity to exchange information. Students can learn about professional and college programs, network with potential employers, and explore volunteer opportunities with non-profit organizations.
Exhibitors should read the Exibitor Information below in order to prepare for the event.
Wednesday, November 12, 2014
10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
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.
You will be provided with a pre-assigned eight-foot table and two chairs. There are some electrical outlets in the room so please let Kent Robinson know if you need electricity. If you want to send any materials ahead of time, you may send them to:
School of Health Studies
Arthur & Sonia Labatt Health Sciences Building, Room 222
London, ON N6A 5B9
For those who need one, we will provide you with a nametag. Please let Kent Robinson (firstname.lastname@example.org) know the name you wish on the tag as well as your title and organization.
We have arranged parking for you again this year. There will be an opportunity for you to drop off your materials at the beginning of the day and pick up your materials at the end of the day (if necessary) at our drop-off point in the 3M lot.
When dropping off materials please let the booth attendant know you are with the Faculty of Health Sciences Career Fair. We have arranged parking spots at the University's two visitor lots if you arrive by 10:30 am:
All these lots are located off of Lambton Drive. Parking is available at a cost of $12 for the day at a maximum.
Student Ambassadors will be available at 9:30 a.m. to help you bring in your display materials. They will be available again at the end of the day to help you with your display materials.
Food and drinks will be provided at the event by Western.
We look forward to seeing you!
