This month's topic: Get hired! Practical advice on how to land your dream job


The Faculty of Engineering at McMaster University would like to offer you an opportunity to further support the success of our students. We have started a new initiative in the Faculty of Engineering to develop a face-to-face mentoring program between current students and our alumni – Fireball Chats with Alumni.

Fireball Chats with Alumni give the McMaster Engineering community the opportunity to chat to a small group of students and share their personal experiences as an engineer in the workforce. Our hope is that each month we can offer our students a chance to have a casual conversation with engineers during which they can ask for advice, help, or insight.

He’s seen thousands of resumes and decided to put this seminar on to help Mac eng grads get the inside track in the job market. Damian is currently the Director of Sales at, a software company that provides machine learning and analytics to the industrial sector.
