Last Tuesday, a Summer Job Fair was held at Champlain St.Lawrence College. Ten companies were present to recruit students during lunch time.

When our communication teacher, Helene Binette, asked us to organize a social event, we immediately thought that a Summer Job Fair would be an exciting and useful challenge. Perhaps, recruiting companies was not as an easy task as it seemed, but in the end it was worth it. During the last month, most of our free time was devoted to finding recruiters. Despite the low responsiveness of companies, we did not give up. After back breaking effort and numerous meetings, we were finally able to invite ten great companies such as Simons, Village Vacances Valcartier and Fairmont.

Finally, the success of the fair was beyond our expectations. On one hand, students were happy to be able to find a good employer and on the other hand, the companies were glad to recruit passionate bilingual students :

"Several of the employers mentioned enjoying the atmosphere and having hired SLC students in the past as being some of the reasons they come back. What great news! Others were impressed at the fact that the event was organized by students."
