Bringing Students and Employers Together with Connect @ X

The Connect @ X event will offer StFX students an exciting opportunity to network with local, provincial and national employers. The StFX students will come from various majors and fields of study, including students participating in the Co-operative Education Program. With limited seats available, the event will include an equal number of employers and students to help ensure that everyone has similarities with at least one other person in the room – the first step in making a lasting connection!


Taking place on Thursday, January 16, 2020, from 6:00 pm to 9 pm, in the Mackay Room, Bloomfield Centre, StFX campus, this event will include a dinner, guest speaker, and networking period, as well as a draw for an X-ring for the students attending the event. As this is a paid event, you can be assured that it is an excellent opportunity for you to meet motivated students for immediate employment, or learn about the career interests of future employees.


Sponsoring with us ensures that your brand presence will be highly visible during the conference, and exhibitors will have the opportunity to market directly to the participating students. Space is limited, tickets will be first come, first served (19 and over). Thank you for considering sponsorship of our networking event.


Registration closes December 30th!
