On Monday, January 29, Schulich School of Business will stage its 9th annual Sports, Media & Entertainment Career Fair, presented by York Sports Business Association. The Fair, which is the only event of its kind in Canada, will provide students with an opportunity to explore careers with leading organizations in the creative industries. Companies will be answering questions and showcasing their workplace cultures, with many promoting a range of roles – from summer internships and entry-level/new grad positions to leadership development program placements and volunteer opportunities.
Some of the companies that are expected to participated include:
- Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Partnership (MLSE)
- Toronto International Film Festival
- Rogers Sports and Media
- Live Nation Canada
- Bell Media
- Toronto Blue Jays
Positions available are expected to cover a range of functional areas including:
- Content and Communication
- Event Management
- Sales & Business Development
- Analytics and Strategy
- Human Resources
Ahead of the Fair, YSBA will hold an online workshop that will prepare students to optimize their experience at the Fair (details TBA – check back soon!).
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.
The Fair is a great opportunity to meet with companies that typically don’t recruit at Schulich. As well, the Fair is only open to Schulich students, so you’ll be able to build relationships with recruiters and gain a competitive edge over students at other institutions. Take advantage of this opportunity to meet company recruiters and register today!
