#151: Chun-Hui Chang – Employers need to understand what “entry level” means

“Career centres and schools should offer seminars every few months which would show students the steps to take to start and set up their own business.” —Barbori Streibl, Student, Academy of Art University Being a post-secondary student certainly has demanded (and still does) a lot of my time, energy, and concentration. However, starting my ownRead More »

#127: Justin Bansal – Establish paid co-op programs at more universities

“Employers that are partnered with Waterloo and similar universities offering co-op programs need to do the same for schools like Western University. Why should some students be at an advantage over others?” —Justin Bansal, Student, Western University Recently, something began to bug me. Is it worth it? Say I do attain a part-time or full-time positionRead More »

Soon after, I got a reply for one ofRead More »
