Connect 2 Careers

The department of Hospitality has been conducting a career fair since the early 1990s. The career fair is always held on the first Tuesday in February and was branded as Connect2Careers (C2C) in 2012. The career fair traditionally attracts in excess of 55 employers from across Canada and in upwards of 800 students attend. Connect2Careers is the largest generator of co-op placements on campus with more than 350 students obtaining jobs on event day.

C2C has many different facets, many which overlap during the day. The day begins with up to 10 free specialized workshops that range in topics from beer tasting, to resume building. The workshops are facilitated by members of our corporate community as a donation to the college. The workshops run from 9:30am to 10:30am, ending just prior to the main career fair opening.

Connect 2 Careers job fair opens its doors at 11am. The recruiters are given space to not only showcase their properties but interview the students at the same time. The recruiters are provided a gourmet lunch by our culinary students.This highly successful event is strongly regarded by our recruiters as “the most professional event” that they attend. Our students are prepared through resume workshops, decorum education and faculty support to ensure our students are chosen first amongst our competitors.

Approximately 55 recruiters attend C2C representing over 80 individual companies, offering a unique opportunity to both our student body and the college. We utilize all hospitality classes being cancelled for the day as method to ensure attendance by both student and faculty alike.


A career fair that finds Georgian College Hospitality Students jobs in their desired fields. It is a good way to network and find a job that you will love!
