Job Shadow Week
Job Shadow Week matches students and alumni with community-based professionals for a 1 to 3 day workplace visit during the fall and winter breaks.
Job shadowing is an excellent way to explore career options in a short period of time where you can accompany, observe, and interview professionals in their workplaces. Job Shadow Week participants will:
- Make connections
- Learn about the day-to-day realities of a career
- Gain valuable advice and insight
November 13-14, 2018

Multiple Mini Interviews
Many programs, particularly those in health-related fields, use Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) for admission into their programs. MMIs are thought to better handle the biases of interviewers, more accurately predict academic performance, and assess non-cognitive skills like interpersonal skills, professionalism, critical thinking and ethical decision making. Candidates rotate through a circuit of stations where they are asked a question or posed a scenario. Interviewees are given a short time to prepare before delivering their response. Interviewers remain at the same station assessing the same question or scenario.
Our MMI Days
We simulate the MMI environment as closely as possible and tailor the questions and scenarios based on the field. You will have the choice of 4 different time slots throughout the day.
After participating in an MMI Day, you will receive both verbal and written feedback to help improve your interview performance.
$50/students and recent graduates (within the last eight months)
How to register
As our MMI Days are popular and spots are limited, early registration is recommended. Call the University of Alberta Career Centre at 780-492-4291 to register; phone messages will be returned in order of receipt.
After U is a series of workshops held in January each year. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
