Finding Your Ideal School Fit [video workshop]

You'll hear over and over again that interviewing for jobs is like dating — it's all about interviewing at different places and finding the right fit.

One of the most important things in the job search process is finding a role somewhere that's great for YOU. A lot of times, school fit plays a big factor whether you'll thrive, and it is worth the time to reflect on whether the schools you're interviewing at are a good fit.

In this workshop, Samson Woo (our Teacher and Community Support Lead) guides you through the process of determining your priorities and reflecting on whether the school you're interviewing at is right for you.
