Signature event

Sustainable Futures Festival: Career Fair

September 14, 2022

How is your organization championing sustainability?

It’s no secret that younger generations of job seekers are looking for more than competitive pay and benefits. They want a career with a purpose, at a company that aligns with their values. For many candidates, sustainability and climate action are top of mind.


Connect with top McGill talent

In September, McGill University will be hosting the Sustainable Futures Festival, a week-long series of events celebrating its 200th anniversary. 

McGill’s Sustainable Futures Festival Career Fair is your opportunity to connect with hundreds of bright, driven students looking to take the next step in their career. Demonstrate how your company shares their vision and is taking steps to create a more sustainable future.

Career Fair booths at a competitive price

Our Exploration Talks package offers a traditional recruitment fair booth. Here you can share general information about your company, promote jobs and internships you are actively recruiting for, and highlight future opportunities. (1 representative)

Cost: $600 + tax

Speak with candidates in small groups

Our Real Talks package offers a standard booth, plus the opportunity to speak with top McGill students in small groups of four or less. Students register in advance to speak with a representative from your company and have specific questions answered. These 15-minute discussions run from 9:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M., and from 1:30 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. (2 representatives)

Cost: $800 + tax

Reach talent year-round

Both packages include access to reach students beyond the Fair. You can:

  • Post job listings and access CVs on McGill’s “myFuture” portal
  • Gain access to the list of student registrants following the Career Fair
