Forging Your Future

Description

Students often struggle with thinking through what happens after university. Some of the people they meet have interesting looking careers and lives, but how they got there is often not easily understood. Another challenge is that most areas of study lead in multiple directions, and open doors to lots of possibilities, but it is sometimes difficult to see what those are.

In Forging Your Future, students will get to explore practical realities and approaches relating to future career paths. The weekly sessions will focus on building skills like resume-writing, interviewing, and networking. There will also be opportunities to meet with young alumni with different academic backgrounds to learn about their paths and how they seized opportunities that helped them along the way.
