BUS 100: Careers and Employer Partnerships Assignment: DUE OCTOBER 29 , 2012 th
This year the Centre for Careers and Employer Partnerships in TRSM is collaborating with BUS 100 to
help introduce and orientate students to the services that are offered to help business students with
their career planning and development. Students will be required to complete an assignment that
will allow them to become familiar with two key resources that the Careers office is using: ClearFit
and WhoPlusYou. It is important that students have a presence on both of these online tools because
they are the platform through which the Careers office will be connecting with students to engage
them with employers.
To facilitate student enrolment within the Centre for Careers and Employer Partnerships at TRSM and
to utilize the self-assessment and placement tools for career path development.
Visit the websitehttps://app1.clearfit.com/?ej=RYE0001- 8 and complete a ClearFit assessment.
The assessment will provide you with a “Career Feedback Report” which outlines your work style
characteristics and strengths. Save the Feedback Report to your computer or USB key. The “Career
Feedback Report” will be e-mailed to you upon completion of the assessment. By filling out a
ClearFit profile the Centre for Careers and Employer Partnerships will be able to match
you with employers that are looking for characteristics and strengths similar to yours.
When a match is identified, the Centre for Careers and Employer Partnerships will notify you of
special opportunities such as networking events, internships and jobs that are relevant to your core
characteristics and strengths.
The second part of the assignment requires you to create an account on www.WhoPlusYou.com . You
can create your account by using your Ryerson e-mail address (only use your Ryerson e-mail
address). On WhoPlusYou you will first be required to complete the Basic Information and Education
fields. In the Education field be sure to indicate that you are pursuing a Bachelors of Commerce and
enter your degree start year. Only complete the fields that apply to you and your past
experiences (e.g. you might not yet have a GPA to submit.) If you need instructions on how to
complete your WhoPlusYou profile and where to find the link to your On-Line CV, please see the
WhoPlusYou instructions document found on your BUS100 BlackBoard page under Course Materials.
The information you populate on the system will automatically generate an On-Line CV for you.
WhoPlusYou is currently being used to notify students at TRSM about scholarships, internship
opportunities and jobs.

Feedback Report. When you have finished writing your paragraph on a word processing
