York University Geomatics Career Fair

york career fair

Four years ago, the Geomatics Club at York University held their first career fair to allow students to gain experience and network with companies. Since then, the Career Fair has just gotten bigger and better. This year, organizers have had to book a larger venue to accommodate the number of interested companies and students. This is a great opportunity for students to network with hiring managers, and for companies to meet the geomatics professionals of tomorrow.

Date: Friday, February 13, 2015
Time: 10:00 – 5:00
Where: Life Science Building @ York University (6 Thompson Road)

The Geomatics Career Fair will include presentations by companies about who they are, what they do, and how students can start their careers in geomatics. Participating companies include:

  • Stantec
  • Applanix
  • Association of Ontario Land Surveyors (AOLS)
  • JD Barnes
  • Tulloch Engineering
  • MMM Group
  • Optech
  • And much more!

Students, bring your resumes! Interviews will be held at the discretion of companies. Last year’s event was a big success, with several students finding full-time employment. The Career Fair will be followed by a social gathering for students and employers, a great opportunity for companies to network with future graduates and other companies in the field.

Organizers would like to extend their invitation to all students, community members, and company representatives. Entrance is free for all attendees and students, and catering will be provided!

The goal of the York University Geomatics Club is to spread the word about the geomatics community, and their hope is to expand their efforts even further into the surrounding community and country. So far, they’ve had nothing but success.

You can confirm your attendance through the Geomatics Club website, or on their EventBrite page. Companies wanting to attend the Career Fair can contact Younis El Guindy at youniselguindy@live.ca.
