We offer the possibility of doing an information session or recruitment booth to companies or universities that can’t attend our formal career events. However, this option usually draws fewer students than the Career or Grad day. As well, we may not be able to accommodate you on the date you would like to hold your event, should there be other social or academic events happening on that day. Therefore, we suggest that you contact us as early as possible to increase the success of your event.
Service fee: $75.00 per visit
