Career Fairs

Career fair employers speaking with Ryerson students

We typically run four large career fairs every year:

  • the Part-Time Jobs Career Fair to fill part-time positions 
  • the STEM Career Fair to fill internships and full-time positions for STEM-related companies
  • the Summer Work Experience Career Fair to fill summer jobs
  • the Graduating and Alumni Career Fair to meet your new graduate recruiting goals across all sectors and industries.

Visit our career fairs and, in a very short amount of time, meet hundreds of Ryerson’s diverse and talented students and alumni all in one place.

For information about our Third-Party and Temp Agency Registration Policy, you can find it on our "Recruit On Campus" page.
