Telfer Connects (TC)

Held annually in September, TC provides 3rd- and 4th-year students with the opportunity to meet employers from a range of industries who are ready to recruit Telfer School graduates. The format of this event resembles a networking event more than a typical career fair. Don't miss this opportunity to connect!

For the fall 2020 term, Telfer Connects goes entirely virtual! 

From September 14 to 25, 2020, students can take advantage of the Telfer Connects - Virtual Event Series, and meet with prospective employers, boost their marketing packages, plan their careers, etc. More than a conventional networking event, the Telfer Connects 2020 - Virtual Event Series includes a wide range of interactive information sessions from multiple organizations as well as themed workshops, all spread over two weeks.

For more details, check out our Calendar of Events on Career Launch.

Telfer Networks (TN)

Held annually in January, TN enables students of all years to meet with employers who are looking for part-time, summer, contract or full-time workers. Practice networking while finding out directly from employers which skills, academic backgrounds and qualifications they are looking for.
