IBM Week (Employer of the Week)

As our inaugural Employer of the Week, IBM Canada came to campus in September 2018 to start off this exciting new series.

During the week of September 10th, IBM Canada came to visit McMaster Engineering students as a part of the Engineering Co-op & Career Services new event series, Employer of the Week.

The Employer of the Week series strives to connect students with employers throughout a week's worth of engaging and creative events. 

IBM started the week off strong, with an "Ask a Co-op Student" booth in the JHE Lobby, which allowed students to talk to current and past students who have worked at IBM about their experience.

From there, IBM held the first ever "Live Resume Roast", where students heard from the IBM recruiting team about how to craft their resume to land that IBM job. Students had a blast, shared lots of laughs ( and thankfully, no tears were shed)! 

Graduating students were not left out! Select applicants were invited to meet one-on-one with recruiters from the Entry Level Consulting program, giving them a unique chance to meet their potential future employer - even before graduating! 

Finally, IBM Week concluded with "IBM Tech Night", which saw over 250 attendees from Engineering, Business and Science (one of the largest employer events ECCS had ever hosted!). 

Students enjoyed meeting with IBM, stating that: "I really enjoyed interacting with past students/recruiters from IBM. I received very helpful insights into the company work culture, and application process for students." 

"I liked how the majority of the IBMers were from McMaster, which made everything very relatable and easy to network with."
