OC Works Visits

What is an Okanagan College Works Visit?

An Okanagan College Works visit is an informal meet and greet opportunity that is hosted at the job site of companies that employ five (5) or more Okanagan College and/or OUC alumni. Staff from Okanagan College and members of the Alumni Association come to visit the site, bringing an assortment of refreshments and make a brief presentation to alumni. The presentation is informal, allowing us to make a personal connection with our alumni and introduce them to the many benefits of active engagement with the Alumni Association as well as bring them up to speed on many exciting events happening at the College. In addition to the refreshments, participants receive a gift and info package spotlighting ways they can increase their connection with the College.

These visits are fun, spirited affairs that allow colleagues to share their stories about their time at Okanagan College or OUC, helping them to develop a stronger personal connection to their fellow alumni. They also highlight to employers the value that Okanagan College provides to its business in the form of  work force training.

Representatives from Okanagan College spent time with alumni working at Crowe MacKay LLP at their offices located in Landmark V. About half of the employees working at Crowe MacKay's Kelowna office are OC/OUC alumni, many of whom were on hand for the event that featured a visit with Dean of the Okanagan School of Business, Dr. Heather Banham, Chair of the Business Administration program, Laura Thurnheer and Tanya Tarlit, the Business Administration Co-op Coordinator. 

Thank you to the management and staff at Crowe MacKay for helping us coordinate this event, and for employing and supporting our students and graduates.
