Partner with King's Career Centre
A recent report from the Conference Board of Canada found that employers want new hires to arrive with both technical knowledge and social and emotional skills.
King's liberal arts programs prepare students with subject-specific competencies and a well-rounded education, equipping them with the transferable skills organizations want. These include not only soft skills, but broader skills such as social perceptiveness, ethical judgement and relationship management.
There are many ways that you can partner with the Centre for Career and Calling to equip our students to take their place in the world once they graduate.
- Attend an opportunities information/career fair.
- Participate in career planning or work readiness workshops.
- Offer an experiential learning opportunity such as job shadowing, volunteering, or an internship.
- Write a post for the Centre for Career and Calling blog.
Contact Witty Sandle, Career and Vocational Counsellor to discuss opportunities for involvement.
