The top three FAQs about UOIT

Posted by Sarah Worthington on November 24, 2014 at 12:30 PM

As a Recruitment Officer, I thought it would be fun to talk about some frequently asked questions (FAQs) that I get while on the road. After doing this for the past three months I have definitely seen a pattern with the questions students seem most eager to ask. I hope that answering these questions can shed some light on what we UOIT folk have come to know as common knowledge.

Important tips from a Recruitment Officer

Posted by Sarah Worthington on October 14, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Two weeks into recruitment season, I have to say that there are many things I expected with this job but many more that I did not. Firstly, I've been pleasantly surprised by the number of grade 11 and 12 students that have shown thorough drive and initiative when it comes to post-secondary learning. The number of students that came to the Ontario Universities' Fair (OUF) on their own and for their own reasons was very encouraging and makes me proud of what we are doing. These students really know what they want and it makes me feel so good when we can provide it for them.

I hope that everyone keeps working hard toward their post-secondary goals because being accepted to university is a huge accomplishment and milestone in itself. If I see any of you at our Open House I will feel like I did my job, and my hope is that you realize how many opportunities I have seen UOIT offer to our students.
