Organized by York University’s Career Centre, Classrooms to Careers is an annual, week-long series of events that arms students with practical information to help them succeed during the transition from student to professional.
The events this year consist of hands-on workshops and presentations that help students learn how to prove their fit as they apply for jobs, use informational interviews to build professional networks, dress for success, stand out in group interviews and choose a first job that fits their personality.
This year, Classrooms to Careers will take place from March 28 to April 1:
- March 28: How to Prove You Have What It Takes to Do the Job
- March 29: How to Dress for Success
- March 30: How To Expand Your Network: Success Strategies for Informational Interviews
- March 31: Suit Yourself: How to Choose a First Job That Works With Your Personality
- April 1: How to Stand out in a Group Interview
Some events will also feature guest speakers. For instance, York alumna Stacey Berry, founder and CEO of BStellar Consulting Group, will share her experience and expertise conducting informational interviews during her session on March 30.
All events are open to current students and new grads (up to two years after graduation). Students can register for these events on the Classrooms to Careers website.
