February 5, 2021
Postsecondary institutions are developing virtual and online ways to recruit new students and connect graduates with employers. Université du Québec à Montréal has announced that its Open Doors event will use over 100 activities, including webinars, one-on-one sessions, and chat rooms to engage people who are interested in UQAM. Enactus Lakehead has launched the Dear Stranger platform, which allows students to connect with upper-year Lakehead students. The University of Prince Edward Island is finding a way to connect UPEI graduates with potential employers; UPEI has asked potential employers to produce recruitment videos that students can watch so that students can make connections with companies.
