Booths

This is the core part of Tech Fair, it is where you as a company can come in and set up a booth and advertise to students. Bring some slides, a project demo, some merch, company banner and whatever else you want! You'll be set up with a table, chairs and power outlets. This is where you get to highlight why students should be joining your company. Students will be coming throughout the day to learn about you and your company.

Interview Workshop

We are looking for volunteers who regularly participate in technical interviews to give a technical interview in front of a group of students. Questions asked to these students would be similar to ones they might see in a technical interview, with programming and problem solving problems.

Interview Tips and Tricks

We are looking for a volunteer who regularly participates in parts of the interview process for candidates. This will be a place to highlight common mistakes made during interviews and how to fix them. Also an opportunity for students to ask questions about interviews.

Resume Workshop

We are looking for volunteers who regularly review resumes to review selected resumes in front of a group of students. The resumes would be ranging from first time co-op seeker to full-time. Students would learn from the constructive comments made and apply those changes to their own resumes.

Career Talks

We are looking for Computing Science or Computer Science graduates who have worked in a variety of companies to come in and speak about their journey. This is an opportunity for students to learn what various careers are like and to answer any questions they may have before beginning their careers.

Photography

We are having a photographer come in and take photos of students they can use for LinkedIn.
