Summer Opportunities 

2021 UPDATE: Given the unique and uncertain circumstances this year, we decided not to host the traditional Summer Opportunities Fair in January 2021. We will be hosting some smaller networking events later in the season to connect our students with summer jobs or volunteer opportunities. Please email qocr@queensu.ca for more information. 

Summer Opportunities Networking Event

Date: March 4, 2021

Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Location: Online via Zoom 

Employers, register here 

Please note that space is very limited and registration will close once all spots are filled 

Costs

There is no cost to attend this event

Logistics

This event will take place online via Zoom. Employers will be provided with a link to a Zoom meeting. A Career Services staff will be present in the Lobby of your Zoom meeting for the duration of the event and will assign each employer to a breakout room. When students enter the Zoom meeting, the Lobby Host will engage with the student to determine which employer(s) they wish to speak with and will assign the student to the appropriate breakout room where an employer representative will be waiting. We would ask that all employers have at least one representative remain present for the duration of the event. 

Please note that it has been our experience that the online event have seen lower student attendance than in-person events. However, the quality of student – employer engagement remains high and many meaningful connections have been made.

Past Participants Review

Here's what one previous exhibitor at our Summer Opportunities Fair had to say:

Once again, the fair was excellent this year! Annually we visit most University fairs in Ontario, and we always walk away with the most candidates from Queen's. We are so happy to visit Kingston each year! Thank you! Cha gheill!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the student audience at this event?

All Queen's students are able to attend this event.

How do students prepare for this event?

Queen's students can access Career Services resources such as counseling year-round. During the academic year, qualified counselors run student workshops, including a series on preparing for each Career Fair. 

Students are encouraged to read our exhibitor guide and do their research before attending. On the day of the event, many bring their resume and are prepared to set up an interview. 

How can I maximize my impact at the event?

Send representatives who can speak directly to your current opportunities, especially Queen's alumni or other new graduates who can connect with students. 

Build your brand awareness with students through an Information Session Package.

Post your summer job opportunities to our MyCareer portal to reach as many Queen's students as possible.
