Recruit to suit

We offer a variety of on-campus events to complement your organization's recruitment strategy and schedule. With an average annual enrolment of more than 18,000 students, MacEwan University is a major contributor to part-time and full-time labour markets in Edmonton and across the province. 

Networking and information sessions

Host a networking mixer. Meet students where they feel comfortable and confident. When you book a networking or information session at our conveniently located campus in downtown Edmonton, all you have to do is arrive on time. We book the room, provide technical assistance, arrange for catering and promote the event through social media, student clubs and MacEwanWorks, our career portal.

Book at least two weeks in advance to allow for arrangement and promotion of your session.

On-campus interviews

Interview schedules can be tricky to organize, especially if several MacEwan students make your “long list” or if you are an out-of-town employer wanting to conduct interviews as efficiently as possible. We can lend a hand by arranging interviews with our students right on campus. On-campus interviews are easier for students to fit into their schedules and require less planning for you.

Several types of interview rooms are available. Please book at least five business days in advance so we can make arrangements.

  • A 2' x 5' table and two chairs, set up in a high-traffic area

Guest speaker and mentorship opportunities

Tell your career story. Share tales humorous or harrowing about resumés gone awry or interview gaffes. Market your organization by mentoring students and sharing your expertise.

We welcome the opportunity to partner with organizations or individuals who are interested in supporting our students through resumé reviews, mock interviews and advice about the transition from university to workplace.
