QSAA has you covered as you prepare to end your time as a Queen's student!
QYourFuture programming offers the Class of 2015 the opportunity to develop their professional skills, leverage Queen’s resources and services, and network with alumni, in order to help them on their desired path as they enter into a new relationship with Queen’s University as an informed, involved, and ultimately invested alumni. Take charge of your future now by joining Queen's Connects on LinkedIn to ask any questions you may have about career paths, job qualifications, or interview advice.
Here are just some of the events run under QYourFuture programming:
This session explored the capabilities of Linkedin.com for researching careers and showed how it can support career decision-making, your job search and networking. Common questions such as: "What do I put in a message when reaching out to someone?" or "How can I get someone to respond to my message without bugging them?" were discussed.
This session focussed on understanding and incorporating practical people skills including dining etiquette, your elevator pitch, power wardrobe choices, and wine etiquette in a speed etiquette format.
The QSAA offered free professional headshots at the Career Services Career Fair 2014 to equip students with a valuable tool - headshots, the "new handshake" in the business world. Photos were taken by Yearbook & Design Services.
Several Queen's students were credentialed members of the Queen's Park press gallery on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 for the QSAA's Media Day.

Special thanks to Sun Media columnist Christina Blizzard for hosting. More photos are available on the Queen's Alumni Flickr.
