I’m not sure about your specific program Krista, but for the MSW - Edmonton cohort, the Coordinators provided a specific form for students who have found their practicum supervisor/setting.

Hi. This is Vesna. I have a BSW from the U of C in 2009. On the topic of networking, I would like to suggest that networking is on going and a professional skill. I stay connected to my alumni association and also I am actively involved with the ACSW. Also there will be new networking opportunities through the ACSW and their shift to forming a new association. Good luck everyone.

Thank you, LJ. I will keep that in mind. I'm a BSW student currently, thinking of MSW. This has opened my eyes about being more proactive. Thanks to you & Sammy.

There is someone (whose name I can’t remember) with the Faculty of SW, UofC, who will review your resume and help you improve it. Maybe someone else has their contact info.

We used to recommend Meet Up as well as a networking option. You can find meet up groups for all interests - great way to meet a broad range of people where you live.

Mohanned, although I have yet to utilize LinkedIn, you can see agencies you are interested in and just send specific people who work there a message to see if they are willing to connect and guide you. Most people are willing to connect online (and people love to talk about themselves)

AHS also offers shadowing. Here’s the job shadow request form: https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/frm-19671.pdf and info https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/careers/page12347.aspx

My thinking is that we also need to keep connected with fellow students, alumni especially those who have worked here before.

My question was answered, but I am doing my final practicum and just thinking about transitioning to a professional role, what are some of the things that I need to be thinking about you know in terms of preparing myself for a professional role?

Sammy. A too long resume will get you screened out. the career page at AHS can provide more details. The standard is two pages unless otherwise requested.
