Day of Connection at DEFSEC Atlantic 2019

All companies are facing a human resources shortfall!

This is an education and exposure event, which will give previously selected students and graduates the opportunity to meet with Human Resources (HR) professionals in the 80+ exhibitor booths at DEFSEC Atlantic. Many of these exhibitors are based in Atlantic Canada and are looking for personnel with STEM centred skills to fill their Human Resources needs.

On Thursday October 3rd beginning at 11:30 am, a welcoming lunch for the group of students and faculty will be served off-site that will include preparatory presentations from Dalhousie and the NSCC's industry liaison professionals. All those students and faculty attending the luncheon event will be pre-registered to enter the DEFSEC Atlantic tradeshow in the Cunard Centre and explore employment opportunities in the Ocean Technology, Aerospace and Defence industries. As well, HR representatives from a number of companies will attend the lunch and be able to meet the students before they proceed over to the DEFSEC Atlantic exhibition floor.

Then at 1:30 pm, approximately 140 graduating and recently graduated students along with their corresponding faculty from Dalhousie University and the Nova Scotia Community College will have the opportunity to explore the broad range of career opportunities available in the Ocean Technology, Aerospace and Defence industries in Atlantic Canada and beyond - by visiting the exhibition floor at DEFSEC Atlantic.
