Career Conversations Panels

With support from York Community and Alumni Relations.

Career Conversations panels let students explore a variety of careers within a specific field, connect with York alumni and individuals working in their field of interest, and get inside tips on securing employment in a specific industry from professionals who do the hiring. Throughout the year, panels are held with two areas of focus:

Career Conversations with Alumni Career Conversations with Hiring Managers
Alumni and other professionals share:

  • Their personal career paths;
  • how their university education is relevant to their particular position;
  • the realities of sectors they work in;
  • strategies for entering the sector;
  • opportunities within their fields;
  • resources for connecting with professionals in that field.
Hiring managers share:

  • Where to find and secure a position within the industry;
  • How to make connections within the field;
  • What is involved in the application process, e.g. specific hiring dates, materials required;
  • How to write effective resumés and cover letters;
  • What to expect during the interview; and
  • How to succeed on the job.
