Online Workshops

Our online workshops are designed for BCIT students and alumni who require a flexible learning schedule and who can’t make it to campus for our in-person workshop series.

Our online workshops are more than an information dump. They are facilitated and designed to help you to produce results.  You will start and finish the workshop with the same group of students and will have the opportunity to interact with the facilitator and often with the other participants as well. Your Career Specialist will provide you with professional feedback and upon successful completion of each workshop, you will produce the tools and gain the information that you need in order to launch a successful job search.

Online workshops are open to all BCIT students and alumni.

BCITSA Career Services now offers online workshops on the following topics:
