Employment workshops

Our employment workshops will give you a competitive edge for the job search ahead. To register, you must be a current SAIT student or alumni. Topics include:

Professionalism
It takes much more than just a polished resumé to land a job. Before you enter the professional workplace, you need to show the employer that you belong there. Do you have a professional attitude? Do you know what it means to "dress for success"? Learn the skills that will not only help you get the job but keep it too.
Resumé and Cover Letter Writing
Learn to get the employer's attention and get an interview with your self-marketing tools, including your resumé, cover letter and reference list. Learn about industry-specific keywords, where to include them, and the importance of tailoring your documents to the job you're applying for.
Interview Strategies
Discover how to effectively research employers and prepare for interviews. Get tips on how to answer general questions like, "What is your greatest weakness?" and "How much money do you expect?". You'll also learn the S-T-A-R strategy for answering behavioural-based questions.
Crafting Your Elevator Speech
What if you only had 30 seconds to introduce yourself to a potential employer? In this workshop, you'll learn how to develop an "elevator speech" that tells people who you are, what you do, and what makes you stand out from the rest of the crowd. Think of it as a sales pitch — only the product is you!
Networking Strategies
Learn about the hidden job market and how to find the many jobs that are never even posted! Sometimes it's who you know, not what you know. You'll also learn different ways to establish your network, such as cold calling and attending networking events.
Developing your LinkedIn Profile
Did you know that 98% of companies now use LinkedIn for recruiting? Find out how you can create a profile that will make a great first impression and showcase your professional brand so potential employers and future colleagues will want to connect with you.
Maximizing LinkedIn for Job Search

Career Fair Preparation

Consultations

Applying for jobs can be daunting when you're competing with hundreds of other applicants for any given opportunity. Meet with one of our Career Development Specialists for a personalized consultation and learn how you can stand out by effectively marketing yourself. Consultation services include:

Resumé Review
Did you know that hiring managers spend less than 11 seconds looking at a resumé? Have one of our specialists review your resumé to make sure it will catch someone's eye, so it doesn't end up in the pile of rejected applications.
Practice Interviews
Schedule a practice interview and our specialist will ask you questions you can expect in real interviews like "What is your greatest weakness?" and "Tell me about a time when you had to deal with an upset co-worker or customer." It's a great opportunity for you to familiarize yourself with the interview process without the risk of making mistakes that could cost you a job!
LinkedIn Profile Review
LinkedIn is a great tool for connecting with potential employers and future colleagues. Have one of our specialists review your profile to ensure it will get you noticed.
Job Search Consults
Have you been applying for jobs and getting no responses? Maybe you're not even sure where to start. We can take a closer look at how you've been going about your job search to identify potential areas for improvement, so you can increase your chances of success.
Co-Curricular Record (CCR)
A Co-Curricular Record (CCR) allows you to show employers the transferable skills and competencies you’ve achieved through co-curricular experiences. By taking part in CCR activities, you will receive an industry-recognized certificate that complements your transcript, making you a well-rounded candidate for any career opportunity.
