UBC has been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People in 2020, for the eighth consecutive year. This special designation recognizes the employers that offer the nation’s best workplaces and programs for young people starting their careers.
Here are some of the reasons why UBC was selected:
UBC manages a community leadership program to help aspiring leaders explore leadership concepts through a series of interactive workshops and experiential learning — participants can practice their skills by leading a group of undergraduate students through a three-day community service learning project during UBC’s Reading Week break in February, either at school or at a non-profit organization
UBC established a Postdoctoral Fellows Office, which acts as a resource to help postdocs expand their professional skills — the Office offers semi-annual orientation sessions for incoming postdocs and created professional development workshops on topics such as time management, project management and grant writing
New ideas and fresh approaches open up possibilities for researching, teaching, and working at UBC. As we strive to make UBC a great place to learn and work, there are a number of supports available to faculty and staff.
