#WILFROMHOME | ACE-WIL

  • Hi, my name is Maria and I’m currently doing a Co-op as a Special Projects Assistant with SFU Communication Co-op. I bet none of us expected it was coming: all of a sudden there were no morning commutes, no more walks to Renaissance Coffee with my co-workers, and no office desk where I could start my day. Working from home happens to be our new reality now. I faced many unexpected challenges while setting into this new routine. Figuring out new ways for effective communication with my coworkers while staying sane is now on my agenda. My team and I figured that I’m not the only student struggling while undergoing the shift. So here I am, sharing some sources that helped me make my hectic reality a bit more manageable and enjoyable. Read more here

  • With the onset of COVID-19, WIL students across the province have had to make the transition to working from home. It’s a difficult time for them, given many are not able to work from home, are unsure about if they should return home not, or suddenly find themselves with unexpected financial hardship. To support those students, ACE-WIL has put together a COVID FAQ for students and employers. All the information that we know at this time about helping students and employers through the pandemic is available there. It also links to the COVID-19 information pages of all of ACE-WIL’s member institutions. For those of us fortunate enough to have jobs we can continue to perform from home, we have the #WILFromHome Series. The #WILFromHome series shows how students and their supervisors are overcoming the challenges presented by working from home. Read more here
