Brampton is home to some of the most dynamic businesses in Canada. Each year, the Brampton Board of Trade recognizes the best of the best small, medium, and large businesses at this inspiring event, Brampton Board of Trade BEA 2021: Business Excellence Awards. It was a matter of great privilege to attend this esteemed event on behalf of the Longo Faculty of Business Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Centre on May 6th, 2021.
Given the value of networking, attending this event was a great resource to connect with businesses in Brampton where our students could find their Work Integrated Learning opportunities. I was able to meet many optimistic businesses that were interested in connecting with jobseekers to fill existing and future opportunities.
It was indeed a great opportunity to expand the network for our WIL students.
