Homework can feel like a chore but if you allocate your time wisely and set attainable goals it makes the process a lot easier. Having a long list of assignments can be daunting. By dividing up a list and setting goals to accomplish each assignment it can help with the overwhelming feeling of making deadlines.
In the past few years employers have been looking up potential candidates on various social networks before inviting them for an interview. Something that may seem harmless to you may end up being a deciding factor on if you get the job or not.
Once you have graduated from one of Sprott-Shaw’s 180 programs, you still have to do an interview to get the job of your dreams. Here are some interview tips from our Career Centre.
At first, networking can be a scary thing to think about. Questions surrounding who, where, how, and when should I network start to come into play. Many times you will find yourself in networking situations; the only difference from a normal conversation is slowly switching the topic to one that is career related.
A cover letter sets you apart from other candidates. It says who you are, past work experience, and what you can bring to the company if they hired you. It shows your personality and sets the tone for how the potential employer will perceive your resume.
The purpose of an informational interview is to find out information about a career from someone who has knowledge about and experience in a particular field. This can help you decide if you want to pursue a career in this field or switch your attention to something else.
