Graduate Discussion - “Landing that Job… What I Need to Know before I Graduate”
The University of Sudbury hosted the very first of their Graduate Panel Discussion Series on February 25, 2019. The topic was “Landing that Job… What I Need to Know before I Graduate”. A panel of alumni were invited to share their knowledge, speak to their experiences during their undergrad; what they found helpful in preparing them for what comes after graduation; what they wish they would have known then; and what they have learned since entering the workforce.
The Panel was moderated by Cassandra Rees, and was comprised of four alumni: Mia Bourque, graduate with a B.A. in Indigenous Studies, current M.A. Candidate, and Indigenous resource person for the Association des étudiantes et étudiants francophones (AEF); Lisa Knauz, graduate with a B.A. Psychology and M.A. in Applied Social Research, and Manager, Special Events Coordinator and a Senior Strength and Conditioning Coach for Sudbury School of Fitness; Jacynthe Lortie, graduate with a B.A. in Music, and current B.Ed Candidate at Laurentian University; and Josh Wong, graduate with a B.A in Law and justice and Indigenous Studies, and Alternative Care Recruiter for Nogdawindamin Family and Community Services.
The goal of this series is to provide networking and sharing opportunities between our current students, and our alumni. Our hope is that our students will leave with some tools and ideas to help better prepare them for what comes after graduation.
