The Get Experience Fair was held on September 22 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the RAWC. The goal of the fair was to give students an opportunity to find internships or volunteer experience, either on or off campus, to boost their résumé. International opportunities were also available for those interested.
Over 70 participating organizations filled the gym with pamphlets and informative booths. Participants included Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel, Ernestine’s Women’s Shelter, Special Olympics Ontario, and University of Toronto Mississauga Students’ Union.
Many of the participants were on campus organizations. Getting volunteer or internship experience on campus is beneficial for students, since they can stay on campus and close to home.
For more information on how to get the experience needed for the workforce, students are asked to visit the career centre office (in the third floor of the William G. Davies building) or website (http://www.utm.utoronto.ca/careers).
