"Co-Curricular Talks” are modelled after the Pecha Kucha style presentation with the focus on bringing together shared experiences both personal and professional. Co-Curricular Talks, similar to a Pecha Kucha depicts the notion of concise storytelling, but rather than the traditional 20 slides in 20 minutes style, presenters are challenged to cover 15 slides in a 5-6 minutes presentation.  

The Career Studio supports CCR Talks through event sponsorship by facilitating connections between SLC leaders, alumni, and employers.

For alumni looking to present, or employers looking to connect with CCR Talk participants, please contact CCR@viu.ca

Labour Market Roundtables (LMRT) are a long-running event at VIU where students from engineering, computer science, and ITAS programs sit down with employers and ask them questions in a roundtable format. Students will move from table to table and learn what its like to work in the industry prior to graduation. 

Employer seats at the roundtable events are limited and past participants are often emailed during Summer months to confirm their availability. If you are interested in participating in the LMRT events though and connecting with the students mentioned above, please email CEL@viu.ca
