What to Expect

This year we tried to replicate our physical Get Experience Fair experience in a virtual environment.

The event will consist of many virtual exhibitor booths, each one hosted by a different UTM department or local organization during the specific time slots outlined below. There will be a different Zoom meeting link for each booth, and we will email you the links to all booths closer to the event date.

Some virtual booths will run at the same time. We encourage you to drop by as many as you'd like (or all of them!), even if you only spend a few minutes in each one.

Each virtual exhibitor booth will be different - some exhibitors will have a series of quick presentations, while others will have "office hours" to answer your questions or do informal networking. Drop by their booths to learn about the many exciting ways you can get experience and build your resume.

 

Who Can Register

We welcome students in all years and programs of study, as well as recent graduates. Please register in advance to receive an email from us with details on how to access the event. Please email vanisa.dimitrova@utoronto.ca if you have any questions.
