Participation in an event assures your organization targeted publicity, on-campus visibility and the opportunity to meet with students face-to-face.

Join us at one or more of our events:

  • Part-time Job Fairs, held at our Oshawa and Whitby campuses in September, promote local employers to new and returning students seeking part-time employment while attending college
  • Winter Job Fairs, held at our Oshawa and Whitby campuses in February, is an ideal opportunity for employers actively recruiting to fill full- time, part-time, co-op, internship, contract, and summer vacancies
  • “I had an excellent experience with the students that attended our virtual information session. This group of students was by far the most engaged and responsive of all the schools I have spoken to virtually or in person. Many of them reached out within the hour that we finished to continue the conversation. It really made me excited to continue working with Durham College and their students in the future. ”
