I Choose Fredericton: Student/Business Social
We get it–jobs are hard to find, let alone the ones that use that degree you just worked for. From building your professional network, meeting a future employer face-to-face, or getting that paid summer internship you've always wanted right here in Fredericton, we've created 'I Choose Fredericton: Student/Business Social' to make it happen. BUT if working for someone else isn't your cup of tea, start your own business! We've got the supports to help you get ahead.
This is THE networking event for students searching for employment post-grad and during the summer. From job shadowing and volunteer work, CO-OP and internships, to even permanent employment, dozens of local businesses are here to start the conversation with you.
