The Centre for Career Action acknowledges that our work is on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our institution is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.The active work by the University of Waterloo toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
In this workshop, we will explore networking basics in academia and learn how to maximize the opportunities to engage in networking events and practices that will benefit your career. We will focus on networking at academic and professional conferences, work search strategies to increase your network and effective social media uses to actively engage with those in your network and more widely share your accomplishments.
Welcome to Cycle #3! Hear from a career advisor about what to expect in the co-op process for the next couple of months, learn more about the hidden gems of the job search, and arranging your own job. We will be ending with a Q&A period so bring your questions! We'll be happy to walk you through your next steps in co-op.
