WHAT IS BACKPACK TO BRIEFCASE (b2B)?
During the academic year, you will be invited to attend various b2B events such as career panel discussions & networking receptions with alumni, sit-down meals hosted by alumni, Career Centre workshops and the U of T Next Steps Conference. This program gives you the opportunity to hear from alumni, ask them questions and build a network with individuals who can offer encouragement and advice as you explore life after graduation.
NOTE: Full participation in the b2B program can be included on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR). Full participation requires: attendance at one b2B Career Centre workshop, one b2B career panel, networking reception or mentorship meal, and the completion of one post-event reflection. Your CCR is an official U of T document that lists approved activities/experiences that you’ve participated in outside the classroom.
Join the Backpack to Briefcase group on LinkedIn and connect with fellow students and alumni before and after each b2B event. Feel free to take part in any career-related discussions on the LinkedIn group or start a discussion of your own!
