  1.  MISC – Employer Showcase – January 24

You’re invited to the University of Toronto Faculty of Information’s 14th annual career networking event on  January 24th,  2019 from 10:30-5:30 pm.

The Annual Employee Showcase Networking Event is designed to connect the Faculty’s next generation of information professionals to employers from across information fields, offering a platform for both emerging professionals and employers to demonstrate their skills and strengths. The event is intended to introduce attendees to new people and ideas, foster conversations and learning opportunities and provide a chance for students and employers alike to showcase their work and talent. While some employers may have jobs posted, the format is designed to promote exchanges and relationships between emerging and established information professionals and their organizations.

Career Networking Format: Unlike previous years this event will run from 10:30-5:30 where employers can choose to stay for a portion or the entirety of the day. However, we still encourage organizations and students to move away from tables to make use of the Inforum space to enjoy some food and mingle with organizations and students to have more informal conversations.

LinkedIn Photos: We are very happy to have Dhoui Chang, who will be offering free professional headshots for LinkedIn to all attendees. Be sure to take advantage of this awesome opportunity to professionalize your profile and take advantage of a service that typically has high costs.
