Ryerson Prepares for GCM Job Fair

March 6, 2017  By PrintAction Staff

Last year’s Ryerson GCM job fair involved 69 companies, 67 graduating students and 130 internship students. There are approximately 270 students signed up for 2017.

Ryerson University’s School of Graphic Communications Management on March 23, 2017, will host its annual Job Fair at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (formerly Maple Leaf Gardens) in downtown Toronto.

The 2017 version of the annual Graphic Communications Management (GCM) Job Fair, which began in the late-1980s, is preparing to host approximately 130 GCMstudents interviewing for internships and 140 graduating students seeking full-time jobs. These numbers eclipse last year’s already packed event, which involved close to 325 people, including 67 graduating students and 130 interns.

In 2016, the GCM Job Fair involved 69 industry companies, both printers and suppliers, looking for employees. There are already more than 70 companies signed up to participate in 2017.


The GCM Job Fair is run in a speed-networking format where graduating students and potential interns, divided into two distinct time sessions, spend 10 minutes interviewing with prospective employers before moving on to a new table at the sound of a gong.

The March 23 event begins at 4:00 pm with graduating-student interviews, which continues until 6:00 pm, followed by a buffet-style dinner, and then intern interviews scheduled to take place between 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm.

Based on a curriculum change two years ago, GCM students can now specialize in specific areas like packaging or publishing in the final two years or their four-year degree program. Students can also now complete minors in areas like business, human resources, or professional communications.
