> Introducing MyGradSkills.ca - Graduate Professional Skills Program

In 2015 the Ontario Consortium for Graduate Professional Skills training launched  MyGradSkills.ca. Using their own university email account, students can log onto the site to view 18 short, self-paced training units on topics such as how to write a resume, how to conduct a job search, the art of entrepreneurship, teaching and learning, and academic and professional communications.
  • The online professional development will benefit those who are interested in a career in academia, as well as those seeking to put their credentials to use in business, government or non-profits.
  • The initiative highlights Ontario’s leading role in graduate education, and the consortium – made up of seven leading research-intensive universities – hopes one day to make the training resources available to graduate students all over the world.
