BOLD Works

We want to make sure that your time at Brescia helps you to develop as a whole student. One of the ways this happens? Gaining hands-on work experience. It’s a vital step towards professional and personal development.

That’s why we’re so excited to launch a unique new work experience program at Brescia: BOLD Works. Brescia’s revamped work study program will ensure you are able to get the most out of this on-campus professional experience, from learning about your own career goals to develop sought-after skills that will extend to your life beyond Brescia.

The wide variety of on-campus positions available through BOLD Works will help you develop competencies, expand your network, access digital career resources, and receive a Co-Curricular Record credit following your assessments and check-ins. This is an opportunity to gain relevant work experience that will help you stand out from the crowd and build your network of supporters!

You're in! What's next? Answer: An Orientation Seminar!
p>

You can start applying to positions in late August – early September. Remember: eligibility for work study is dependent on eligibility for OSAP and several other factors. Not eligible? Come talk to us at the SLC about options and next steps for work experience.

If your application is successful, you will be notified of a required BOLD Works Orientation Seminar in September. It will provide you with program timelines, on-boarding info, and professionalism tips and tricks.

Once you have attended the seminar, you will gain access to the exclusive BOLD Works site, filled with resources, your assessments, and supplementary activities that can help with your career journey.

The Assessments
p>

BOLD Works is guided by the idea that meaningful experiences require meaningful reflection. That’s why we’ve chosen Explore, Learn, Plan, Reflect as the guiding slogan. For that reason, we’ve incorporated four student-led assessments for students that allow you to solidify career goals and gain professional experiences.

Assessment details can be found on the BOLD Works OWL site, but you will be required to submit these completed forms to Meg Pirie, Coordinator, Student Life and Learning once they are complete. Why? So that you’re eligible for your Co-Curricular Record credit at the conclusion of your experience.

To summarize, here are a list of assessments you are responsible for:

  • Go over your Competency Checklist with your Supervisor and submit it to Meg Pirie, Coordinator, Student Life and Learning at mpirie2@uwo.ca by the end of September
  • Arrange a conversation with your Supervisor to go over your Mid-Point Check-in. Once complete, submit your assessment to Meg Pirie, Coordinator, Student Life and Learning at mpirie2@uwo.ca no later than the start of January 11, 2019
  • Complete your STARR Exercise and submit to Meg Pirie, Coordinator, Student Life and Learning at mpirie2@uwo.ca no later than March 1st, 2019
