Logistics
How will the fair work this year? The fairs will be hosted on Zoom. We will have a member of the Career Services Employer Team in each lobby, and each lobby host will manage up to six breakout rooms. Every employer or exhibitor will have up to two named breakout rooms in which to meet students. Via the MyCareer platform, students will receive a map with Zoom rooms listed. The exhibitor guide will be available soon on our website, providing an opportunity for students to research jobs and employers in advance. Just as in previous years, we will have a welcome room with a student preparation area, and a resume clinic too. Career Services staff will be available throughout the fair to facilitate professional connections between employers and students.
 
Past Participants Review
Here's what previous exhibitors at our Career Fair have to say:

Thank you both for the success of yesterday. The fair was exceptionally well organized, attended, and my staff delighted with the candidates we met.

You guys put together a great event. Everything was well organized. [We] found it easy to get our gear unloaded and set up, and the staff was very helpful. All in all I feel like we had a successful day.

Cancellation Policy
Cancellation Policy

 

Please send notice of cancellation in writing to qocr@queensu.ca. If notice of an exhibitor cancelling their registration is received 14 days or more before the event, a full refund of the registration fee less a $100 administrative fee will be given. 

If the cancellation is received after the 14 day cut-off date, no refund will be issued. This policy applies whether or not payment was submitted at the time of online registration - exhibitors who cancel within the 14 day cut-off date will still receive an invoice. 

Exhibitors who register for the Fair but do not attend on the day of the event will be required to pay the full cost of registration for the Fair. No registration will be accepted for a future event until payment for the unattended Fair is submitted.
