ASHRAE + Humber College Career Panel: How to Ace the Interview

ASHRAE Toronto Student Activities Committee invites you to join us for a webinar about developing your soft skills and becoming the best version of yourself.

Event Summary

ASHRAE Toronto is hosting a Career Panel alongside the Humber College Faculty of Applied Sciences and Technology Co-op and Work Placement Services. 

Humber College will provide a short presentation on the fundamentals on how to best prepare and handle interviewing to make sure you come out on top.

We have three panelists, who through their long extensive careers, have interviewed many different candidates for all sorts of positions. We will be picking their brains to see what to know to give you your best chance in successfully acing your interview.

The panel will be followed by a short Q&A session so come with questions that you hope to learn from people who have sharpened their instincts on what makes a candidate stand out.
