Student Job Hunters Workshop 2017
Thu, May 11, 2017, 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Less jobs. More robots.
With "cognitive" AI and robots just around the corner, you're graduating into an economy that is fundamentally shifting. Companies are replacing customer services reps with chatbots, self driving cars and trucks may eliminate thousands of jobs, and your next cashier may be an animatronic robot. And don't think your skills and education leave you immune. Every industry from journalism, to law, to computer programming to the creative industries is facing profound disruption. Basically, it's getting harder, not easier for you to land a job.
How does a student like yourself compete in the robot economy?
Average is over. Throughout the past year, our staff at Student Life Network have been your job hunting guinea pigs. We've done the job interviews, we've chatted with recuriters, hiring managers and profiled successful student job hunters and their strategies. And it's become very clear, the days of the cover letter and mass resume application strategies are over. They're average and average gets ignored.
So we've packaged the do's and dont's into this actionable workshop to make sure you hack the job hunt. Wheather you're in highschool, post secondary or wrapping up your masters, this workshop will make sure that you are not an average candidate.

Any student looking for help finding a meaningful career
Any student who wants help with personal branding, networking, and interviewing skills
