Jobs are good, slavery still
London Young Alumni Careers will address the needs of recent
graduates and young alumni in career exploration, job search,
employment retention and successful school to work transition.
The program is free for everyone and intensive training sessions
will be hosted in partnership with the Alumni Association and
employment resource services in London.
“The training sessions are three weeks in duration and
cover Career Exploration and Development in week one, followed
by competitive job search and career advancement in week two
and one-to-one individual employment support in week three,” explained
Christina Fox, student and young alumni outreach co-ordinator
at Western. “Sessions will be offered over a 12 month
period and will serve approximately 100 young alumni in total.
“To be eligible to participate in the program, the participants
must simply be graduates of Western within 10 years post-graduation,
who are available to access services in London,” she
