Three reasons engineering employers don’t want to miss our next E3

E3Every year, dozens of major engineering employers and skilled engineering candidates from across Ontario come together for a productive day of job search networking at OSPE’s Engineering Employer Events (E3s).

In 2017, OSPE hosted a total of 6 E3s, that brought together 51 exhibiting employers and over 980 job seekers to help fill more than 230 job openings. Participating employers from 2017 have noted at least 161 “success stories” – including follow up interviews and referrals.

Here are three BIG reasons engineering employers don’t want to miss OSPE’s upcoming E3s:

Engineering Candidates

Sifting through stacks of resumes can be a challenge – especially when you consider the additional time and effort required to complete the subsequent phone and in-person interviews that are typically part of the hiring process. On paper, a candidate may seem like a great fit, but engineering employers know that enthusiasm, initiative and cultural fit are examples of important factors that are much easier to gauge through quality face-to-face interactions.

Efficiency engineering employers

OSPE’s E3s afford engineering employers the opportunity to efficiently get acquainted with qualified candidates of all experience levels, who have a keen interest in their company or field of work. Engineering employers typically provide job descriptions for several vacant positions, so that they can converse with knowledgeable engineers and engineering graduates to fill a variety of different roles within their organizations – all at one convenient event.
