Tech & Trades Career Fair attracts more than 1,000 students, alumni and employers
Nearly 1,000 students and alumni from applied computing, engineering and skilled trades programs engaged with approximately 50 employers and community partners representing a diverse range of industries during Sheridan's recent Tech & Trades Career Fair at Davis Campus.
The Fair — the first in-person event hosted by Sheridan's Career-Integrated Learning (CIL) team since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic — provided participants with the chance to network and discuss industry trends, skill requirements and potential full-time, part-time and work-integrated learning opportunities.
Employment positions represented at the Fair included application system analysts, mechanical designers, user interface software developers, welders, electromechanical technicians, millwrights, project engineers, electrical engineers, quality assurance specialists and more.
"The Tech & Trades Career Fair serves as a bridge between Sheridan and industry, empowering our students and graduates with the tools they need for success," says Joanne Islip, Interim Director, Career-Integrated Learning at Sheridan. "Our students are well-equipped with practical hands-on experience and they have a breadth of career catalysts (soft skills) that differentiate them in the workforce."
Organizations interested in participating in upcoming Career-Integrated Learning events to connect with Sheridan talent are encouraged to contact the CIL team at email@example.com.
