Thursday Day of Connection Luncheon Sponsorship

Event Sponsored by


On Thursday, October 1st, approximately 150 graduating and recently graduated students along with their corresponding faculty will have the opportunity to explore the broad range of career opportunities available in the Ocean Technology, Aerospace and Defence industries in Atlantic Canada and beyond - by visiting the exhibition floor at DEFSEC Atlantic.

This is an education and exposure event, which will give previously selected students and graduates the opportunity to meet with Human Resources professionals in the exhibitor booths at DEFSEC Atlantic. Many of these exhibitors are based in Atlantic Canada and are looking for personnel with STEM centred skills to fill their Human Resources needs.

The welcoming lunch will be served off-site, but nearby that will include preparatory presentations from industry liaison professionals. All those attending the luncheon event will be pre-registered to enter the DEFSEC Trade Show in the Cunard Centre and explore employment opportunities in the Ocean Technology, Aerospace and Defence industry.

Exhibitors at DEFSEC Atlantic will be briefed on the student's arrival and expectations and will have Human Resources professional on hand to discuss opportunities in their organizations.
