Events

Networking is the backbone of business, and we know that giving you an opportunity to meet with potential employers is an important part of your DeGroote experience. There are several types of events that are usually held each year. In most cases you register for these events on OSCARplus.

Company Information Sessions

Learn more about specific employers, the positions they have available, and the recruitment process during these sessions which are held at the beginning of the fall and winter semesters. These events include some time for networking as well.

Mock Interview Night

This annual event is an opportunity for you to hone your interview skills and make excellent contacts. During the evening you participate in mock group interviews with an alumnus, member of the business community or potential employer, giving you an opportunity to practice and to see how other students answer questions. At the end of the night there is time for networking to give you the chance to meet all the participants.

Practice Your Pitch

How do you pitch yourself to employers? These mock interview sessions give you an opportunity to practice your interview skills and receive valuable feedback from an employer. There are a limited number of sessions, so watch for announcements on OSCARplus and Avenue to Learn and register before space runs out!

Industry Awareness Trips

Go right to the source! Throughout the year, some of DeGroote’s employer partners host site visits at their offices. These events give you an opportunity to learn about the inner workings of an organization and the industry, while also getting a feel for the company’s corporate culture and work environment. These trips are popular and space is limited, so check OSCARplus regularly for announcements about these great experiences.

CPD hosts many other professional development and employer engagement events throughout the year. Our events focus on building the core skills and experiences that employers look for in potential employees.
