Employer Recruitment Sessions

Every year employers from select industries – particularly larger employers from technology, accounting, finance and sales & marketing companies – come to campus to recruit York students and new grads. Connect with these employers who can answer your questions about their organization's culture, career opportunities, what skills and experience they're seeking and how you can apply. Recruitment Sessions take place during employers' recruitment cycles which are typically September to November and mid-January to March.
