Ahead of the Fair, on Thursday, January 19, at 5:30 p.m., YSBA will hold an online workshop that will prepare students to optimize their experience at the Fair. Students will learn what to expect from the event, how to approach companies, what questions to ask company officials, how to network, how to follow up and network post-Fair, and insights into what recruiters seek in future employees.

The Fair is ideal for students interested in a career in the business of sport, media and entertainment or are still exploring career options and are curious to learn more about careers in the creative industries.
