Figuring out what career path to take is hard enough on a regular day, let alone during a pandemic.
Lucky for us, colleges and universities are taking note and finding safe ways to get prospective students the resources they need to make that dream career happen. Throw in the chance to win scholarship money, and we’re already breathing a sigh of relief.
With classes taking place online this semester, it makes sense that open houses have moved to the virtual realm, too. Bow Valley College, Alberta’s largest community college, is hosting its inaugural virtual Open House event on Saturday, October 17, from 10 am to 2 pm, meaning you can get all the information you need without leaving the couch.
As a bonus, everyone who registers for and attends the open house will be entered for the chance to win a $500 or $1,000 scholarship — a great way to start your new educational path.
With over 40 programs to choose from, ranging from fields in technology to health to business, Bow Valley College provides its students with the education they need to be job-ready in as little as eight months.
No matter where you are in your education journey — whether you’re a high school student, looking to transition careers, new to Canada, or a post-graduate looking to gain new skills — the Open House is a chance to get questions answered and take the first step towards your next career move.
Participate in a live Q&A period with staff members, faculty, and alumni — it’s the perfect chance to gain insight and ask those burning questions. Chat one-on-one with alumni about what aspects of their program helped them most in their field, or ask staff members about financial bursaries and counselling services. Everything is fair game.
Not sure which program will help you land your ideal job? This is a good chance to learn more about the different programs on offer and to ensure that you’re making the right choice for your future.
You may not be able to attend the Open House in-person this year, but you’ll still get the chance to feel like you’re on campus through photo and live and pre-recorded video presentations. Bow Valley College emphasizes the importance of community, and it’s comforting to know that during these trying times, they’re finding new ways to facilitate learning and support access to essential resources, so you can continue to focus on your career path ahead.
The Bow Valley College Virtual Open House will take place on Saturday, October 17, from 10 am to 2 pm MST. Register for the open house now and enter to win up to a $1,000 scholarship! Your chances of winning are increased the more engaged you are during the Open House, so get ready to participate.
