The VIU Work-integrated Learning (WIL) Connect resume book module is a new module within the CareerVIU system which allows select employers who are seeking students for an internship to view student profiles that may be of assistance for pre-screening potential candidates for your work-integrated learning opportunity.  The profiles in this module contain questions answered by students that highlight their experience and skills as well as a copy of their resume.

WIL Connect is open only to employers who are known to the MBA internship program and have hosted an MBA intern at least once in the past 5 years.   If you login to CareerVIU and cannot see the link to the WIL Connect module but would like to access it, please contact the MBA internship program Experiential Learning Assistant Tawnya.Hoff@viu.ca for assistance.
