The McGill University Technology Career Fair provides an excellent occasion for McGill students and recent graduates, to network with industry representatives and find out about jobs and internships. A collaborative effort between the Engineering Career Centre (ECC), the Engineering Student Society (EUS), and the Computer Science Undergraduate Society (CSUS), the McGill University Technology Career Fair (McGill Techfair) was created in 2000 to connect students in engineering, computer science and physical sciences with top employers with the purpose of exploring career or internship opportunities. Access is free for students and alumni.
If you are not looking for an internship but are very interested in networking and finding out about the opportunities out there, you can also consider becoming a volunteer and helping out at the Techfair to get an insider's point of view!
