COVID-19 has had a large impact on post-secondary work-integrated learning opportunities. It has affected both the setting in which students work (working from home) and the availability of work placement jobs and future work placement jobs. 

Researchers conducted a study to test whether students can be “primed” to be more open to job postings that may seem unrelated to their interests or academic program.

Relevant work experiences are central to the success of work-integrated learning (WIL) programs. This study explores students' previous experiences to identify the "building blocks" of relevant WIL work experiences.

Résumé critiques are one of the most popular services offered by career services at post-secondary institutions. Researchers wanted to know if using an artificial intelligence-based (“AI”) résumé critique tool prior to an in-person critique would influence the student’s critique experience and learning outcomes.
