We are offering this workshop series free of charge to alumni, places are strictly limited so please register quickly to avoid disappointment.
Workshop 1: Design your career
Professionals with the most successful careers have a clear sense of their future yet are able to respond quickly to the opportunities that come their way. However, the rapid change in the global labour market has made the transition from study to employment increasingly complex.
Workshop 2: Develop your marketing tools
In this interactive workshop, participants will learn how to develop an effective resume and cover letter. Participants will explore ways they can identify the relevant information for their job applications and how to present this information to best represent them. This workshop will further explore how to develop the marketing tools participants will need for their job search and brand building toolkit.
Workshop 3: Strategic networking
"Engage your allies and be a good ally" says the Canadian Blueprint for Career Development. This elegantly summarises one of the key skills for a successful career, yet the concept of networking can be both daunting and nebulous.
