All the employers taking part in the NEW GRAD CAREER EXPO are currently
hiring new graduates and have been recognized as exceptional workplaces
by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. Mediacorp manages this editorial project, together with eight
special-interest "top employer" competitions on subjects ranging from
green initiatives to the best employers for young people. Mediacorp
also publishes The Career Directory, an annual guide now in its 18th year that lets new graduates match their academic qualifications with
great employers that need people with their skills.
The NEW GRAD CAREER EXPO will also feature a special musical performance
by New Brunswick singer-songwriter Andy Brown, who performed his hit
single "Ashes" on ABC Television's Rookie Blues program last week. Hot Toronto dance DJ Dave Campbell will also be
spinning tunes all day, so young people can groove while they look for
a great place to work.
