Campus Career Shadow Day for Indigenous Students

Campus Career Shadow Day is a unique opportunity for self-identified Indigenous students to engage in career exploration on campus. This opportunity will allow you to make a connection between classroom and career to better understand the knowledge, skills and requirements needed to pursue a fulfilling career at Laurier.

Participation in Campus Career Shadow Day includes pre-shadow and post-shadow meetings with representatives from the Office of Indigenous Initiatives, Career Development Centre and Human Resources.

You will be paired with a Laurier staff or faculty member who aligns with your careers goals and will be able to provide insight into the field. You will shadow this member of the Laurier community on a day of their choosing between November and December 2018.


Self-identified Indigenous students studying at any Laurier campus are eligible to participate.
