Career fairs all over campus 

While prospective students are visiting Concordia for the first time this month, current students are thinking about the next stage of their lives. Career fairs on campus are a great way to see the range of possibilities.


There’s an Education Career Fair on Wednesday, Feb. 6, from 2 to 7 p.m., and a Social Sciences and Humanities Career Fair on Thursday, Feb. 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Both are in the atrium of the LB Building.


Emerging engineers and computer scientists can attend a three-day career fair on March 3, 4 and 5 from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the seventh-floor rooms of the Hall Building.


On March 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., on the SP mezzanine on the Loyola Campus, the Faculty of Arts and Science is sponsoring a Science Career Fair.


In the John Molson School of Business, there’s a series of specialized workshops for the career-minded undergraduate. All are held from 2 to 4 p.m. in GM-403-02. They start on Feb. 7 and continue to March 27 on such subjects as interview strategies, the summer job search, negotiating job offers, and so on.
Also in the JMSB, there are workshops for graduate students with such titles as Turning Contacts Into Careers (Feb. 1) and Getting Past the Screening Process (Feb. 29). For a full list of the JMSB workshops, go to:

Business French

By popular demand, the business school has instituted Le Coach, a professional development program to provide the fundamentals of business French.

With Le Coach, students are encouraged to converse in a business context to improve their French skills. They discuss current business trends, day-to-day business tools like presentations and phone calls, and job-seeking techniques, all in the language of Molière. Vocabulary and grammar are integrated into the classes, but the focus is on communication skills. For more information, go to
