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.
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.
Light snacks and refreshments will be served after the round table session, from 2 to 3 p.m.
