6 credit hours from courses at the 3000 level and above as listed in the Academic Calendar or 6 credit hours of Asian language courses at the 2000 level.
To do this year:
- If you have knowledge in an Asian language, you may take an Asian course at the 3000 level instead of the 2000 level.
- Confirm eligibility to graduate with an Academic Advisor, and declare intent to graduate in Aurora.
Market your skills: develop your resumé and cover letter and refine your interview skills.
Start job search 9 months in advance: contact Career Services to refine your job search and self-marketing strategies. You can visit the office up to 6 months after graduation.
If you are continuing on to graduate school: finalize your application materials and search for funding and awards to help finance your continuing education. Contact your department to find out how their awards deadlines are advertised.
Consider graduate programs? A provisional year may be required to compliment this three year degree.
Volunteer and work experience
Search for job opportunities online: check out workinculture.ca, Job Bank, Find My Job, Indeed or other search engines.
Use your networks and connections: inquire about unadvertised job openings (the "hidden job market"). The JET program in Japan accepts this three year degree.
Ensure you have references in place: ask your professor for a reference or a letter of recommendation if you're applying to a professional program.
Assess your resumé: identify any gaps in experience and fill them through volunteering, work placements or internships such as the Post-Secondary Recruitment Program.
Did you travel abroad? Become an exchange mentor for the International Student Mentorship Program, join the exchange student community at the University of Manitoba or write an article about your experience.
Participate in the multicultural opportunities on campus: volunteer for Graduation Pow Wow.
Prepare to work in a multicultural environment: visit Canada's National Research Centre for Truth and Reconciliation on campus. Get access to Lynda.com through the Winnipeg Public Library and take courses to develop your cross-cultural intelligence. Consider teaching English in South Korea.
