How to Get Involved

Partnership Opportunities and Events

There are many ways you can get involved with the DeGroote School of Business to promote employment opportunities and create positive awareness about your organization in the DeGroote community.

Company Information Sessions

Company information sessions are an excellent way to tell our students about your organization and upcoming job opportunities. They’re a great way to network with future employees.

Our team helps facilitate information sessions by:

  • Reserving the venue and audio-visual equipment on campus
  • Referring you to catering services on campus
  • Providing free advertising for your event through multiple channels
  • Providing an online RSVP system for students
  • Integrating your session with your job postings and on-campus interview schedule
  • Having a CPD team member at the session to make sure everything runs smoothly

Practice Your Pitch

Join us on campus to meet DeGroote students and help them develop their interview skills.

In 20 minute intervals, you’ll take students through a short behavioural-based mock interview. Your constructive feedback will help with the students’ professional development, and you’ll have a chance to interact with DeGroote students one-on-one. You may even find a future employee in the process!

Cup o’ Joe

These small, informal events are a great way to introduce students to your organization and industry. One or two company representatives meet with groups of up to ten students to talk about their own career paths and to offer advice based on their personal experiences.

These events are meant to give employers and students an opportunity to interact on a different level than at the company information sessions. They continue to be well received by everyone involved.

Class Speaking Opportunities

Employers and faculty members can work together to create guest speaker opportunities. If you are interested in a class speaking engagement, please send a written proposal outlining the topic you’re interested in speaking about to cbcd@mcmaster.ca.¬†We’ll work with our instructors to find an opportunity for you.

Other CPD Events

We also host several larger events which bring together many of our employer partners.

  • Mock Interview Night
  • Commerce Internship Program (CIP) Career Night

Invitations are sent directly to our partners. If you would like to be included, please email cbcd@mcmaster.ca.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Several of the student clubs and associations host industry-related events to help raise awareness about career opportunities in different areas. If you’d like to learn more, contact CPD at cbcd@mcmaster.ca.
