GST 101: Professional Skills Preparatory Course

Through the GST 101: Professional Skills Preparatory Course, students will examine, define and equip themselves with the critical skills and workplace competencies employers' desire in successful candidates for employment. These professional skills assist students in obtaining valuable volunteer/community service/service learning, internships, Co-ops and jobs, and give job candidates a competitive advantage in the workplace.

This course will prepare, involve and connect students in the fundamental aspects of career planning through self-assessment, market analysis, professional etiquette and networking, personal budgeting and career application through to the interview process. It will produce informed and engaged citizens who think clearly and deeply, express themselves effectively and pride themselves on being lifelong learners who are able to adapt and flourish in any setting. Students are required to have good academic standing.


GST 101 is a pre-requisite to a Co-op.
