University campus helps students prepare for career search

The University of B.C. Okanagan’s faculty of management is organizing Career Days

A major goal of attending university is to land a great career. With this in mind, University of B.C.  Okanagan’s faculty of management is organizing Career Days from Sunday to Wednesday to give students job hunting skills, ideas, and tips needed for today’s fast-paced world.

“Career Days provides a lot of fantastic programming designed to help students define their own unique career paths,” said Rhys Mahannah, organizer of the event.

“The event provides the opportunity for our students to learn about career skills, develop their resumés and interview strategies.”

Career Days kicks off with a student leadership conference, with a variety of educational sessions.

This takes place Sunday and information can be found at:

During Career Days, the faculty of management is hosting several campus events, including the back-by-popular-demand Extreme Makeover resumé review session Tuesday and the speed-networking and social event at 5 p.m. the same day.

Students can register for these at

“During the speed-networking and social, students will learn more about what various organizations are doing and what types of student and graduate positions they’re offering,” said Mahannah.

“This is a great opportunity for students to engage with the organizations that interest them most, while enjoying catered food and a drink.”

The mock interview session, Ace Your Interview, takes place Wednesday, and Mahannah says this free workshop is ideal for people who get jittery at the thought of a job interview.

All UBC students attending the Okanagan campus are welcome to participate in the events and UBC alumni are encouraged to take part in both the speed-networking and social activities.
