Career Exploration Workshops

What can I do with my degree? What do I want to do next? If you have these types of questions, then the Career Exploration series of workshops is a great place to start. These career supports are designed to provide you with the skills to articulate who you are and what you want in the world of work, create opportunities and be more confident about making great career choices — whether it's diving into the world of work or pursuing further education.

Registration on the Career Centre's online system is required for all workshops (you must sign up for an account on the system before you will be able to register for any workshops).
