How To Career Fair Panel (Virtual)

Are you planning to attend the CSO’s upcoming Large Employer Career Fair? Not sure how to prepare, what to talk about, or how to make the most of the opportunity?  Curious about what employers look to get out of the event?  How (if at all) should the change to a virtual format impact your strategy? Want to get your summer or articling application noticed, regardless of whether you’re applying in Vancouver, Toronto, or Calgary?  Curious if your cover letter really matters? How many lawyers should you aim to meet (and mention in your application materials)? And how do you navigate applying to (and networking with!) the same employer in multiple markets?

Attend this panel to hear insider tips for Career Fair success from the CSO and employer representatives. Hear from recruiter and lawyer panelists on what they look for when reviewing applications, what to avoid, and how to best ensure your application ends up in the “yes” pile.
