The Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Centre was excited to take part in the Be Placement Ready event held on March 20th as part of Career Month. The event aimed to equip students with the tools and resources needed to identify the essential skills, knowledge, and experience required to secure a job or internship in their program of study.
The event saw a strong turnout, with students approaching the booths with insightful questions about their curriculum-based placement courses. It provided an excellent opportunity to foster a sense of community among students, as well as offer networking and socializing opportunities outside of the classroom. The feedback from students was overwhelmingly positive, with many recognizing that being placement ready requires time and effort, and emphasizing the importance of patience and persistence in their job search.
The event was represented by:
Students were reassured to learn that Humber College offers a range of career services to support their job search journey. These services include resume and cover letter reviews, mock interviews, job search assistance, and career fairs where students can personally interact with employers. They were also informed about the workshops and events hosted by the Career Centre and WIL Centre, which provide further opportunities to learn about job search strategies and network with potential employers.
The Be Placement Ready event was a valuable initiative organized by the WIL Centre during Career Month and served as an important platform for students to gather information and resources to enhance their employability. The WIL Centre remains committed to supporting students in their career development journey and looks forward to organizing similar events in the future.
