Job Fair

A bird's eye view of the GCM job fair tables

The GCM Job Fair is an employer’s best opportunity to connect with determined students seeking summer internships or full-time career positions. Last year we had 70 companies interviewing. It is free to attend, but registration is required.

The Job Fair has time for both structured interviews and open networking. As an employer, you can expect to directly interview approximately 19 students — 11 potential interns and 8 graduating students — and we encourage you to speak with and collect résumés from as many other students as you’d like.

Interns are generally finishing their third year and are looking for full-time work from May to August. They are required to complete at least 420 hours of work before graduation. Internships must be paid, with the salary negotiated between the company and student.

Unfortunately we do not allow for banners, signage or table cloths. Signage will be provided for you. You may bring brochures and business cards where space is available on the table.

Certainly! You can attend one or stay for both, depending on whether you’re hiring for interns or grads. Please make sure to indicate this on your registration.

Please prepare pen, notepad, business card and any other materials you think is necessary to assist you with the interview process. We will provide bottled water.

Unfortunately, we are not able to send you the list due to last minute changes being made to interview schedules.

We leave the next step of the recruitment process to you. Some students are hired on the spot and while others are invited to attend a second round of interviews. If you have filled a position, we ask that you send a courtesy email to students who showed interest in the position but were not selected for the role.

 

Congratulations! Once an intern has accepted the offer, the onus is on the student to contact the school about their employment so that we can update their status and make arrangements for a site visit.
