Please send this message below about this year's Engineering Career Fair that is taking place on January 13, 2011 to all your faculty, instructors and graduate students. Undergraduate students are receiving notice of this event through their program student liaison officers and Eng Soc. This is a great event for all students (undergraduate and graduate) and I'd encourage faculty to encourage students to attend and also consider dropping by to support our students and visiting industrial partners.
This year the Engineering Society is again organizing the You're Next! Science and Engineering Career Fair 2011 . It will take place shortly after the break on Thursday, January 13, 2011, 10am – 4pm. Last year marked the beginning of the annual You’re Next! fair, with over 24 companies and over 3000 students in attendance. This year promises to be build on last year’s success with a focus on preparing students to meet employers and learn about their companies, opportunities, and recruitment practices.

Need a platform to talk to employers directly about why You should be their Next employee?
You’re Next! 2011 is the University of Toronto’s one stop recruitment event for undergraduate and graduate students in Engineering and Science, which will be held this winter, Thursday, January 13, 2011, 10am – 4pm, at the University of Toronto St. George campus. In 2010, over 3000 undergraduate and graduate students attended You’re Next! meeting representatives from companies such as RIM, Microsoft, Diageo, Husky, Schulmberger, and many more. Whether you are in Mechanical, Engineering Science, Mineral, Chemical or any discipline, You’re Next! is the perfect opportunity for students, graduates and post-graduates to meet recruiters looking for 12 - 16 month internships, summer employment/ internships and full-time employment. This is also a chance for you to check out what the job market is like and what opportunities may lie ahead in your career path. In addition, because you represent the world’s highest ranked engineering program in Canada, you may even get the chance to land an interview on-the-spot in the new designated interview booths!
