Do you plan to attend Industry Days but don’t know how to prepare for it? This online workshop gives you feedback and step-by-step preparation guidelines via video presentation.

Do you find it difficult to get noticed at Career Fairs?

Find it a bit intimidating to strike up a conversation with a recruiter?

We’ve found another way for BCIT students and alumni to get noticed by prospective employers before the event. BCITSA is working closely with Riipen to provide experiential opportunities to students through their online platform.

How? Create your personal pitch and answer the interview question: “Tell us about yourself”. Your pitch will be visible to participating employers and will give you a leg up when introducing yourself at the event. If an employer likes what they see, we will encourage them to reach out to you before the career fairs to start a conversation!
