work experience that would help with interview

Recommended Posts

hi there

im finishing my first year of cegep in a few days now, and i was wondering if yall had any suggestions for summer jobs / experiences in general that would be good to mention in an interview. I know Unis dont even take cvs (except mcgill), but do i still think having a decent background would help. 

thank u!!

It's not about what job you had, it's about what experiences you draw from it. For example, working as a waitress in a restaurent can teach you how to deal with conflict or about efficient teamwork. I really don't think that no specific job is preferable. 

Maybe helping in a healthcare setting (with jecontribue) could be good, but any job is fine.

Salut! Comme Sunshine! a dit c'est vraiment ce que tu retires de tes expériences qui est le plus important et je crois que c'est important d'aimer ce que tu fais aussi!! Personnellement, j'ai été préposée dans un CHSLD et je crois que c'est l'expérience qui m'a le plus rapproché de mon désir de poursuivre la médecine et j'en ai appris énormément (résolution de conflit, travail d'équipe, empathie, voir les réalités des lacunes du système de santé en vrai) donc si tu considères un emploi/bénévolat en CHSLD ou hôpital je recommande full tu vas rencontrer plein de beau monde incroyable en plus :D
