Get Hired Conference

In light of recent events, the Get Hired Conference has been moved to an online format!

What is Get Hired?

Get Hired is an interactive, award-winning annual conference offered by the Academic Advising & Career Centre (AA&CC) designed to equip upcoming and new UofT graduates with the necessary strategies, tools, skills and confidence to find and keep work. This three-day conference will be held VIRTUALLY from April 27-29, 2021. All sessions will be facilitated online, including keynote speakers, interactive workshops, concurrent sessions and demo interviews with our employer partners.

New this year we are including three virtual networking events: One with U of T Alumni and two events with our Employer and Recruiter partners. These events will be able to give you a chance to hear successful career stories, get advice on your job search from the professionals and know what you’ll need to be successful “out there”.

Who Can Participate?

Students in Year 3 or 4+ of their degree (i.e., around 14+ credits completed), as well as new and recent UofT graduates (undergraduate or graduate) up to 2 years after graduation, should attend. Preference will be given to students in their graduating year and new grads. Although this is a UTSC initiative, we are pleased to offer limited spaces for UTM and St. George students.

What Does It Cost?

A conference like this through a private company would likely cost $500 or more - and you can attend free of charge thanks to TD Insurance, MBNA and the AA&CC!

How Do I Register?

Registration will open in early March, check back then to secure your spot. We will also post an updated agenda as we get closer to the conference. All registered students will be sent detailed logistical instructions, materials and final details by email one week before the conference (note this will be sent to your utoronto email address).

Proudly sponsored by U of T affinity program partners MBNA Canada and TD Insurance:
