What Do Employers Really Want?

Get in the KNOW (Knowledge and Networking Opportunities for the Workplace)

The KNOW conference is a one-day professional gathering with an emphasis on teaching students a range of skills to prepare them for the future. It assists students in learning, taking part in, and acting on employer needs in relation to marketable jobs. Additionally, it allows for one-on-one exchanges of ideas and creative energy between business professionals, the public, Saskatchewan Polytechnic alumni and industry specialists. 

The third annual KNOW conference presented by Graham will be held in March offering 21st Century Skills workshops powered by RBC Future Launch. There will be four full-day, in-person, conferences this year with one hosted at each campus. To establish relationships and acquire effective networking strategies, the conference brings together students, alumni, and business partners to interact and learn effective networking techniques. 

Professionals, including graduates of Sask Polytech, are encouraged to offer their knowledge, wisdom, and perspective on a range of subjects, including lifelong learning, professional standards, interpersonal skills, and financial awareness. Through the sharing of information about resume writing, interview techniques, and networking, business professionals from the field will teach students how to market themselves and their skill set during the recruiting process.  

As a sponsor, you will help students grow and develop their unique abilities, talents and support them in becoming successful in their chosen career. Additionally, you get the chance to interact with students at various times throughout the day.
