How to stand out in a 2020 workforce

How to stand out in a 2020 workforce

This workshop will help you develop a plan of action to use your time in an online environment effectively, and intentionally develop key skills employers look for in job applicants.

We will show you how to find opportunities to grow, volunteer, complete virtual internships, find online courses that give you an edge and meet a whole new community of friends, peers and future colleagues.

When you sit across from a graduate recruiter next year and they ask "what did YOU do to make the most of your time in 2020?" you will be ready.
