Volunteer with APEGA Student Conference 2019

The 2019 APEGA Student Conference brings together engineering and geoscience university students from across Alberta for a full day of knowledge and skill-building with industry professionals, ending with an evening reception perfect for networking. We are looking for industry professionals—including APEGA members and non-members with relevant experience—to meet and work with university students who are preparing to enter the professions themselves.

Join us for the opportunity to help students:

  • Build their knowledge about career planning and job-search best practices
  • Expand their network of professionals in the industry
  • Take their networking skills to the next level
  • Learn about non-traditional career paths in the engineering and geoscience professions
  • Receive industry-specific feedback on their resume and interview skills

Not an APEGA member? Join us anyways! Membership is not required for this event

Volunteer Role Details

Rapid Resume Review

Professional engineers, professional geoscientists and human resources representatives are invited to participate in a “speed-dating” format where they will review and critique resumes for students. This will allow students the opportunity to gain valuable feedback to help them create a resume to start them on their professional path.

Speed Mock Interviews

Professional engineers, professional geoscientists and human resources representatives are invited to participate in a “speed-dating” format where they will interview, review, and critique answers given by students. This will allow students the opportunity to gain valuable feedback to help them improve their interviewing skills to start them on their professional path.

Industry Mixer

Professional engineers, professional geoscientists, engineers-in-training and geoscientists-in-training are invited to share their expertise, knowledge and career path by speaking one-on-one with various students for short intervals. Students are exploring career options, looking to make professional contacts for internships, or simply interested in networking.
