Six years and running, thank you RBC!

Volunteer representatives from RBC Bank once again came to campus to provide valuable resume feedback and job search advice to 38 internship students. 

On Thursday, February 2, from 9 a.m. until after 4 p.m., six RBC representatives met with students one-on-one in the Student Learning Commons. 

This partnership began in 2018 and is still going strong, even through the pandemic.  Todd, Heather, Liston, Andrew, Dan, and  Brad all stated they enjoyed spending their day speaking with our “wonderful and talented” students, and the students came out of their meetings with valuable information.

”I am so pleased everything went well this year," said Marc de Rome, Branch Manager. "We certainly enjoy our partnership It’s very gratifying for us to support students in this exercise!”

This annual event deliberately leads up to the AggieWIL Internship/Career/Summer Job Fair happening this year on February 8 in the Langille Athletic Centre. 

Twenty-five employers including McCain Foods, Cavendish, J.D. Irving, Perennia, and N.S. Federation of Agriculture, just to name a few, will be on campus from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. to meet and hopefully recruit student employees.

“Work Integrated Learning is such an important component for our students and I am happy to be a part of it. The students are inspiring and the industry partners are so supportive,” expressed Joy Galloway-Jones, Senior Instructor and Manager of WIL for the Faculty.  “I look forward to seeing everyone at the AggieWIL Fair and supporting the student interns who take one of the four offered summer internship courses.”
