It’s important to stay social post-grad

Faculty clubs. Athletic events. Social committees. Pub nightfundraisers. Campus newspapers. There are so many possibilities forstudents to get involved in extra-curricular activities.

Faculty clubs. Athletic events. Social committees. Pub night fundraisers. Campus newspapers. There are so many possibilities for students to get involved in extra-curricular activities.

Once you walk across that stage to accept your degree or diploma, those opportunities on campus are left behind.

But these types of personal endeavours remain important — they’re character builders and they enhance your resumé and show you are a well-rounded individual. Here are some great ways to get involved in your community.

• Browse charity websites that represent a cause you believe in to see what volunteer initiatives are available: World Wildlife Fund, Canadian Cancer Society, local Humane Society or other pet rescue organization.

• Pick up pamphlets that advertise major fundraising events and participate in them. Think Terry Fox Run or CIBC Run for the Cure. It’s all about raising money for a great cause and getting a workout.

• Check out your local YMCA or community centre to see which intramural sports teams are accepting new members.

• Research volunteering websites to see what openings might be a suitable fit for you. Habitat.ca is one example.

• Search for volunteer opportunities on career websites (like TalentEgg.ca).

TalentEgg.ca is Canada's online career resource for students and recent grads.
