On-Campus (Virtual) Information Sessions

We welcome you to promote your company to U of T Engineering students through on-campus virtual information sessions. We can help you organize the virtual session, and advertise the event to students. The presentation format, information and speakers are determined by you, the employer.

There are two optimal times in the year to host information sessions:

  • September to mid October; and
  • January to early February

We also work with the U of T Career Centre to ensure that info sessions targeting engineering students are advertised to the appropriate students.

To organize an employer information session on campus, please contact Joanne Huynh at joanne.huynh@utoronto.ca In your message, please indicate the types of students you're looking to attract (e.g., engineering students of a particular discipline, new graduates, current students) and the kinds of positions you're looking to fill (e.g., full-time positions, ESIP positions, PEY Co-op positions).

Virtual Information Session

  • Cost: Complimentary from the ECC for Fall 2020. (Winter 2021 TBD)
  • Timeslot: 1-2 hour timeslot
  • Technology: ZOOM/MS Teams (with a waiting room, password, participants are muted upon entering)
  • Support: An ECC staff will be with you throughout the duration of your virtual information session
  • Marketing: ECC will be taking care of the creation and sharing of the information session
  • Process: Contact Joanne at joanne.huynh@utoronto and she will help you determine who your target audience is, and your goals.

OPTIONAL: Recording

Cost: $200+HST

If you are interested in having your Virtual information session recorded and hosted safely (video encrypted etc on our UofT platform) and then posted on our ECC site for students to view after the information session we can do that.

Upon clicking on the video it will prompt the student to login via their Utorid which restricts access to only UofT staff, faculty and students who will be able to view the video.

Having your video available afterwards allows students to watch and be connected to your organization if they missed the initial information session, in this regard your outreach will be substantially higher.

We will also provide you with click through metrics at the beginning of December
