Whether you are actively searching for new opportunities or casually keeping an eye on the engineering job market in your region, here are three ways OSPE has you covered.
Engineering Employment Events (E3s)
OSPE’s E3s are boutique-style job fairs that allow you the chance to speak with hiring employers one-on-one, view their organization’s current openings, and apply for the opportunities that interest you.
This fall, OSPE is offering four E3s to help you with your next career move:
September 14, 2017
OSPE and the Ontario Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists (OACETT) have partnered to present an E3 that welcomes recent graduates and individuals with an EIT, P.Eng., C.E.T., C.Tech. or A.Sc.T designation. **Please note: this event is not open to students**
OSPE and Transport Canada have partnered to present a series of E3s that will connect you directly with managers in various departments of Transport Canada seeking engineering expertise in various disciplines for multiple entry- and management-level positions. These events welcome both recent engineering graduates and established professionals. **Please note: this event is not open to students**
Register below for one of three events:
- September 11, 2017: Palais des congrès de Montréal, Montréal
- September 23, 2017: Andaz Ottawa ByWard Market, Ottawa
- September 30, 2017: Corporate Event Centre at CHSI, Mississauga
|Want to know what engineering employers are really looking for in a job candidate today? We’ll give you a hint: it’s not what you’ve been told.
Join us immediately prior to each E3 for a CareerQuest workshop to learn how to make yourself stand out from other candidates. Each workshop is led by an experienced engineering recruiter or hiring manager who will tell you exactly what makes a superior job candidate.
To attend any of these E3s and to sign up for the CareerQuest workshop, register at www.ospe.on.ca/events.

These online workshops are a must for anyone looking to advance their career. Each workshop is led by a former engineering head hunter with 20 years of success.
