Career Path Seminar

12–16 April (online) | 15–19 November (online)

Monday–Friday, 6–9 pm

What is the Career Path Seminar?

The Career Path Seminar is a way to get you thinking about your first career—or your next career change. Developed in collaboration with a psychologist, a career consultant, a design thinking expert and a communication expert, the five modules walk you through self-reflection tools. Through interactive sessions and close teamwork, you will deconstruct stereotypes and myths, examine how you define success and how to cope with failure, and hear from expert facilitators on changing sectors. You will come away with an action plan for how to start working towards your own dream path.

Register for the November Career Path Seminar here. Questions? Learn more at one of our open info sessions.
