Opportunities Fair 2023

The Co-op Office and Student Career Services will be hosting our Opportunities Fair on September 13, 2023. This is an opportunity for employers to meet StFX students and promote co-op, summer, or new graduate roles. We have strong interest from students for accounting/finance and IT/computing types of roles. 
Light refreshments may be available to our employer attendees (dependent on Public Health COVID 19 protocols).
