Gitsegukla Summer Student Program 2023

Deadline: May 24th, 2023

Summer is just around the corner, and for students, that means it’s time to start thinking about summer job opportunities.

Before you apply, make sure to take some time to properly format and update your resume. Your resume is your chance to showcase your skills and experiences, so make sure to highlight your strengths and tailor your application to the job requirements.

You can update and print your resume with Donna Alexcee at the Band Office.
Joe Sampare is also at the Learning Centre, were you can update your resume.

Interviews are likely to be scheduled on the next Pro-D day, which is May 26th. To be considered for the summer student program, you must submit your resume to the Learning Centre before May 24th.

Keep in mind that this program is open to students between the ages of 15-30, and you must be a current or returning student in September.

By participating in the summer student program, you’ll have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, develop new skills, and make connections that could benefit you in the future.

Whether you’re interested in pursuing a career in your field of study or just want to gain some transferable skills, this program can help you achieve your goals.

3 Tips to Create a Great Resume!

  1. Use a template!
    Whether you’re using Microsoft Office, Google Docs, Pages or Canva, using a template will save you time. You can take this one step further by creating a Master Resume. This will be a running document that focuses on your skills, education, work-experience. That way, you can copy and paste your information into a Resume Template, so you can better customize the finished resume you’re sending out.
  2. Be careful with colour!
    No matter where you apply, the resume must be easy to read, so avoid making your headings too light of colour, and definitely avoid using hard to read fonts. Make sure the background is white, and black or blue as your main text. If you must have a highlight colour, use it sparingly and be sure that it’s easy to glance at and read. Blank space is important, as it draws attention directly to the text on the page, so be sure you use size 12-14 with your font, and have generous line spacing.
  3. Save as One Page PDF
    This one could be a little tricky while condensing down your life’s experience into 1 page. But the goal is to have your Skills, Education and Experience on the front of the page, and if you have 2 pages, to print it out double sided, with a small footer noting that the resume continues on the other side. Saving as PDF makes sure your prospective employer can quickly open your resume and make a decision to reach out.
