Best Practices for School to Work Transitions

First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) students will be seeking work during various times in their lives. Some may seek work directly after post-secondary school, others during school, and others may use an alternative pathway. The following best practices can assist our FNMI students:

  • Cover letters, resumes and Curriculum Vitae (CV) workshops
  • Interview skills and mock interviews
  • Job search resources and web-based engines
  • Essential skills in the workplace information
  • Balancing work, life and/or school info
  • Volunteering resources and options
  • Mentorship opportunities info sessions
  • Placement and internship info sessions
  • Apprenticeship possibilities
  • Financial planning workshops
  • Workshops on small business opportunities for First Nations, Métis and Inuit people
