BizTech Career Fair: Employer Profiles
The BizTech Career Fair has so much to offer to us PSB students. This year, there will be many employers in attendance. This gives us a great opportunity to network in addition to getting our resumes out there. One of the employers looking to hire at BizTech 2018 is Vision Transportation Systems Inc and F1 Freight Systems. I actually had the chance to speak with Ming Smith, who is their Human Resources Manager and a Sheridan alumni. She gave me some inside perspective on the company culture, what she enjoys about working there, and advice on how to approach their booth. Here is everything you need to know to meet them!

They have donated millions to the cancer ward in Oakville Hospital. In fact, the treatment area is named after the owner’s father due to their generosity.

“It’s a different challenge every day, I get recognized for the work that I do, and there are bonuses too! Also, the people are friendly and welcoming, and I get to travel.”
How to Approach at the Biztech Career Fair:
Just walk on up! We are former Sheridan students and want to pass on our opportunities to others. Even if you just want to connect with us on LinkedIn… because you never know!
Because we bleed blue, we have hired former Sheridan students at Candybox Marketing to re-brand our website.
