BCIT students and alumni already have an advantage when applying for jobs due to BCIT’s strong reputation throughout industries in Canada and the world.
However, there’s more to preparing for your career then just completing your studies. Take the time to explore all of the career development resources available to you and start to make a proactive plan for your career. Fine-tune your resumes and cover letters, learn about workplace culture in Canada, and make an effort to better understand the industry that you are aiming to be a part of. Taking these extra steps can be the difference between being the selected candidate at your next job interview, or being the runner up.
