Schulich Stages 7th Annual Sports, Media and Entertainment Career Fair
On Friday, January 28th, Schulich School of Business will stage its 7th annual Sports, Media and Entertainment Career Fair, presented by York Sports Business Association (YSBA). The Fair, which is the only event of its kind in Canada, will provide students with an opportunity to explore careers with leading organisations in the creative industries. Companies will be answering questions and showcasing their workplace cultures, with many promoting a range of roles – from summer internships and entry level/new grad positions to leadership development program placements and volunteer opportunities.
The Fair is ideal for students interested in a career in the business side of sport, media and entertainment or those that are still exploring their career options and are curious to learn more about careers in the creative industries.
This year’s online edition will set a new record for total number of participating companies, with over 40 expected. As well, like last year’s edition, professional associations will make students aware of the supports available to help them achieve their career goals. Past participants include:
- Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Partnership (MLSE)
- Toronto International Film Festival
- Tennis Canada
- Rogers Sports and Media
- Toronto Blue Jays
Ahead of the Fair, on Thursday, January 20th, at 5:30 p.m. the YSBA will hold a Workshop to prepare for what to expect from the event, how to approach companies, what questions to ask company officials, how to network virtually, how to follow up and network post-Fair, and insights into what recruiters seek in future employees.
The Fair is a great opportunity to meet with companies that typically don’t recruit at Schulich and gain a competitive edge over students at other institutions. As well, the Fair is free and only open to Schulich students, so register today! Here are the details for the Fair and the Workshop:
