On September 23, 2015, the Genesis Centre attended Memorial University’s 2015 Career and Graduate School Fair at the Fieldhouse on campus. This annual event was held from 10AM-4PM and featured over 100 different presenting companies, each with their own booth. Organizations of all shapes and sizes attended the event this year, with major oil & gas companies, municipalities, universities and local businesses all operating a booth.
All of the booths at the event were wonderful, some offering giveaways such as pens, tote bags and chocolate (looking at you Newfoundland Chocolate Company, so delicious), while one booth even offered free headshots photos for LinkedIn profiles. All in all it was a great event to network with individuals in a wide variety of industries, learn about the culture, environment and people of many different firms and, of course, apply to full and part-time positions with many companies.
The event was also a success for the Genesis Centre. Our booth was busy throughout the entire day, and we met people from all educational and working backgrounds. We loved hearing all of your innovative business ideas, and highly recommend you all apply for the winter cohort of our Evolution program. In total over 180 visited our booth, which gave us so many opportunities to meet great people and teach them about the Centre. The Fair was a wonderful time, and we hope next year’s will be just as exciting. Can’t wait!
