The Academic Success Centre (ASC) is partnering with Student Employment Services (SES) to provide a comprehensive, interactive workshop series on the development of employment documents and skills for students.
The series will be a combination of presentations by the SES team supported by ASC workshops on complementary topics including: Job Search Strategies and Networking, LinkedIn Profile Development, Resumes and Cover letters, and Interview Strategies. By attending all workshop, students will gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed with their job search. The series complements Math, Science, and Communication’s (COMM-2172) Communication for the Workplace course.
These workshops will be designed for students in business related programs. All students are welcome to attend and adapt the information to their field.
