Career fair creates common ground for students and local employers

For Peng Jiang, networking with regional employers gives an insight into how companies and students can help each other succeed.

Jiang was one of many students who attended the second annual Working in Windsor-Essex Career Expo in the Ambassador Auditorium on Thursday. A native of Beijing, he is a master’s student of international accounting and finance, and looks forward to job offers from employers in the region.

Electronic form to streamline employee tuition waiver application process

An electronic application tool currently in development will simplify the process of applying under the Tuition Remission Benefit Program for faculty and staff, says Cheryl Paglione, associate director of pensions, benefits and HR systems in the Department of Human Resources.

She calls the eTuitionWaiver part of the department’s ongoing commitment to provide the highest quality and most effective levels of service delivery. While the electronic application will not be available until later in the school year, applicants will already see one benefit.
