VOLUNTEER & WORK EXPERIENCE

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.
