Early Career Program

 

The RFG2018 Conference in Vancouver will be the ultimate opportunity for you to network and meet with professionals and peers in your field, as well as with managers throughout the industry. When it comes to looking for that perfect job – or perhaps co-op opportunity or research support – a strong network can be the key to getting straight A’s!

The Early Career program will ensure the RFG2018 conference is both informative and educational. It will enable you to put your best foot forward and make a lasting impression. And it is one of the greatest opportunities to make friends with your peers from schools across the world.
