World of Work Centre
R. B. Russell is unique in offering our students the services of a World of Work Centre. Two professional staff and a career intern assist students in developing skills required for success in the workplace. We offer assistance with the job search process, practicum placements and information about post-secondary opportunities.
Our goal is to assist students in preparing for the workplace through the following outcomes and strategies:
