First NYIT Vancouver Alumni Dinner
New York Institute of Technology, Vancouver Campus, held its first Alumni dinner on November the 8th at Steamworks in Downtown. The purpose of the dinner was to stay connected with our alumni .
NYIT is always glad to know what its graduates are doing in their respective fields and how their MBA degree has helped them secure those opportunities. We believe that this continuous relationship benefits both the school and the alumni. Networking is a vital tool for any professional and we at NYIT always aim to emphasize on the importance of networking and pass these skills onto our current and future students.
The alumni dinner was attended by few of our recent graduates and the School of Management was represented by our career services Coordinator, Ms. Jasjit Rai and our professor, Dr. Brian Amouzegar. We were glad to know that most of our graduates have secured jobs in various fields such as the hotel industry, banking, automotive, media and so on.
We look forward to having more such events in the near future. We wish our alumni luck in their future endeavours.

Community engagement in health: How can you contribute to decision-making?
Belinda Boyd, one of the leaders of community health engagement at Vancouver Coastal Health held an informative workshop on 15th November. The workshop focused on educating students about one’s own health and safety.
The workshop also aimed at expressing the idea of community health engagement and to spread the message to improve health care around the province of British Columbia. As it is always known, prevention is better than cure – this makes more sense in the idea of community health care as it aims to educate every member of the community to prevent rather than spend money for the cure. Health care is an expensive issue and to help bring costs down, preventing these issues from arising is one of the best ways to avoiding bills; which in turn cost the tax payer money.
Belinda also invited the students of New York Institute of Technology in Vancouver to be an active part of this community in spreading the message of Vancouver Coastal Health. We thank her for taking time out of her busy schedule and organizing this workshop. We hope to see her again.

SunLife Financial representatives, Marlena and Kristian held a workshop at NYIT’s Vancouver Campus. The main focus of the event was to share information about career opportunities in the field of Finance and Insurance.
The event started off by giving some background information about the company and the field and its workings.; what a typical work day of an agent working at SunLife consists of and how much they earn. The representatives also noted down the information of the attendees so that they could send them a questionnaire that would help the student build their career in the same field.
The students as a whole enjoyed the event as it helped in exploring career opportunities and also understanding the field of finance and insurance. We would like to thank SunLife Financial for supporting NYIT’s career building programs and would love to have them back next time.

Looking to Volunteer in the Vancouver Business Community? Then perhaps this post is for you.
Many of you have mentioned that they would like to start volunteering in the Vancouver (business) community.
Therefore, we at NYIT plan on starting a volunteering club to explore these options together.
Anyone who is interested, please send an email to our Director for Student Advancement, Dr. Binh Nguyen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why volunteer, you ask? Below are some benefits of volunteering.
- Ideal opportunity to gain information and exposure to different jobs in varying fields and work settings,
- Learn or develop strengths and skills (communication, teamwork, time management, positive attitude, initiative),
- Although you’re not paid, it qualifies as work experience,
- Meet new people, extend your network, and make valuable contacts,
- Build self-confidence and feel valued,
- Enjoy the satisfaction of making a difference,
- Provide you with additional sources of positive work references.
Building a Network through Volunteering
Building and nurturing your network is a vital component of managing your career. Volunteering can be a wonderful avenue to build and expand your network. Remember networking is about requesting information not a request for employment. Networking is the research you do with people. As you make connections with others, you will increase your market intelligence and uncover opportunities you may never have discovered otherwise. Every person you meet is a potential lead to new career opportunities and becomes part of your network.
