Opportunities Fair 2021

The Co-op Office and Student Career Services will be hosting our Accounting Opportunity Fair in September 2021. This is an opportunity for employers to meet StFX students and promote co-op, summer, or new graduate roles.  Light refreshments may be available to our employer attendees (dependent on Public Health COVID 19 protocols). We will provide bottled water.
