Workshops and info sessions

The Career Development office offers an evolving series of seminars, workshops and drop-in clinics that emphasize the enhancement of transferable and professional skill sets which contribute to long-term success. Our goal is to help students build and capitalize on their knowledge and abilities to improve their career-readiness within increasingly specialized and challenging professional fields.

Sessions are open to all students and new graduates (subject to capacity). Core resources referenced in these sessions can be found on our “Tools and resources” page.
