What type of Arts professionals will be there?

You will be able to meet representatives from different sectors with varied educational backgrounds and experience, who all got their start with an Arts degree. There are over 15 professionals for you to connect with from industries such as education, law, government, education, arts and culture, and more!

How will the event run?

There will be five rounds of networking, each approximately 15 minutes in length. After each round, you will move on to another table of interest. You will be able to ask the Arts professionals questions about their organization, their career path and how an Arts degree led them to where they are now. Overall, you should be able to visit four to five tables.

Should students bring a resume?
No. The event is meant to provide an opportunity for students to network from a career perspective with professionals. It is not a job fair or recruitment event.
Can I connect with these professionals after the sessions?
One hour of informal networking will follow the round table sessions, at which time you will have the opportunity to connect with more of the sector representatives. These professional representatives are invited to share their experience and knowledge but are not committed to be formal mentors. If you are interested in having a formal mentor, learn more about Mount Royal's Harry G. Schaefer Mentorship program.
Will there be food?
Light snacks and refreshments will be served after the round table session, from 2 to 3 p.m.
