Going Back to Campus!
Employer Services has made the decision to host on-campus and virtual events this upcoming academic year. We recognize that facilitating connections between students and employers is a crucial element of our student's career development. As we transition back to in-person events and activities we’ll also be working with our campus partners in the coming months to create quality opportunities for employers and students to connect in-person and virtually.
Host a recruitment event (virtual/in person)
Please note: Requests must be received at least three weeks prior to your preferred event date. This is a mandatory requirement for all employer information session requests to ensure we can plan and market the event accordingly. Information sessions will be marketed through on our online Career board, student e-newsletter, NAITSA’s Ookslife and program emails.
Sessions will be posted at least a week before event to target your preferred programs.

Employer information session
What makes your company unique? Do you have exciting career opportunities for students and recent graduates? Host an information session for students in programs that specifically apply to your organization and career opportunities. These structured sessions (presentation, question period) are a great way for many students to learn about who you and what you do before they participate in the application and interview process.
- 1 hour in length
- We will set up the information session and provide event support
- We will take registrations on Career Connect to measure potential attendance. Attendance cannot be guaranteed. Students are asked to register online in advance, but drop-in attendance is welcomed.
- Student registration lists cannot be provided to employers
Please note: Employer Services cannot actively assist in recruiting efforts of employers wishing to hire from NAIT’s apprenticeships programs. Current apprentice students are sponsored by their current employer when they study at NAIT. Our recruitment sessions are geared toward current students, not alumni or apprentices. However, employers can still post Apprenticeship and Journeyperson opportunities on our career board.
Individual Company Office Hours
Students can learn more about industries and organizations through our office hours.
Typically, these virtual sessions are one hour and are organization-specific with no formal presentation. Employers will answer questions submitted by registered students. They provide students with the opportunity to speak directly with an employer and gain insight into an organization’s culture, qualifications of new hires, details on the recruiting process, as well as information about open positions. These sessions will be conducted through Career Connect and Teams so that students and employers can engage face-to-face. These can be customized as individual or group sessions.
Recruitment events can be booked between late September and the first week in April. Confirming recruitment events will begin August for 2022/23.
As recruitment moves from virtual spaces back to on campus, Employer Services can help. If you require assistance facilitating interview space on campus, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your request has been processed, an email will be sent with further event details within 5 business days.
