Smart Start Workshops – Day 3 Schedule

8:30-8:55 a.m. – Check-in – Cedar Building

9-9:55 a.m. – Funding Your Education – CE136 (Financial Aid)

Planning for a post-secondary education can feel complicated; figuring out how to pay for it doesn't have to be.  This workshop provides a roadmap of the financial options available and help students get started on creating their own educational financial plan. 

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Describe some options for financial support
  • Create an educational financial plan
  • Identify one opportunity to explore this semester

10-10:55 a.m. – Professional resumes: getting you to the interview – CE136 (Career Development Centre)

Employers aren’t exactly poring over your resume. In fact, most only take a few seconds to determine who moves onto the next stage. If your goal is to create a resume that will get you to the interview seat, we look forward to seeing you at this workshop.

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Understand the purpose and importance of a resume
  • How to write an effective and strategic resume

11-11:55 a.m. – Be Prepared, Be On Time, Be The One – CE136 (Career Development Centre)

“Winging it” is not something you should practice when it comes to job interviews. Most fail due to a lack of preparation. This workshop will provide you with tips on what to do before, during and after the interview to get you on the payroll.

By the end of this workshop, learners will be able to:

  • Develop an understanding of how to prepare for an interview
  • Learn how to answer typical interview questions
  • General interview etiquette
