What is careerSpark?

Your opportunity for a sneak peek at our up-and-coming talent, careerSpark is comprised of a combination of timed and open networking with students from your preferred programs. The evening will kick off with an exclusive employer thank-you dinner.


Why participate?

  • Build awareness of your organization with our best & brightest:
    80% of our previous careerSpark student participants said that they were more likely to pursue new opportunities with employers that they had met that evening.
     
  • Connect—or reconnect—with U of T Scarborough’s Co-op team
    We’d love to meet you in person, or simply to see you again!
     
  • Meet students from programs you’re interested in hiring from …before other recruiters
    Each year, a few of our employers are so impressed by our students, they specially request them for their upcoming co-op positions.

What to expect

Dinner
To start the evening off right, join us for a catered dinner exclusively for you and our other employer partners.
 
Scheduled Networking
Once dinner has concluded, we’ll move to a series of seated, pre-scheduled networking opportunities with groups of 2-3 co-op students. This ensures you’ll have the opportunity to meet with up to 16 students (depending on your preferred program). 
 
Open Networking Reception
To wrap up the evening, students will have the opportunity to continue conversations started with you throughout the evening or additionally, others may seek you out to introduce themselves. 

“I was really impressed by how prepared the students were. They had obviously researched my company before we met!” - Jessica Nguyen, former careerSpark Industry Expert
