EMP FEST - a week-long Employment Festival
EMP FEST was a week-long Employment Festival that ran successfully - fior the first time - in early February. The festival was targetted at undergraduates, whether you are in your first year and wondering about working in the summer, or in your last year, and trying to start a career.
The goal of EMP FEST is to address the disconnect between students and employment. It seems that over the past few years more and more students have become increasingly concerned about the usefulness of their degrees. Though the Students' Union's mandate does not ensure that each student will have a job after graduation, we can help to provide the tools and resources they need to get off on the right foot: there are a multitude of events, sessions, workshops and so on, throughout the year that are related to employment and careers.
