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.
“Your Work Here: A Workshop on Professional Presence at GradEx”
This workshop - for students who will be exhibiting work at GradEx - will take you through the essential steps toward capitalizing on this major event, from the perspective of the opportunity to engage and interact with a significant audience and achieve early professional goals. Whether it’s a conversation with a curator, building new relationships with collectors or impressing talent recruiters from the design world, we will work through the immediate, practical things students can do to make the most of the GradEx experience.
Sessions are limited to room capacity and seats are available on a first-come basis. Students only need to attend one workshop from among the dates available.
