Career Action Chronicles: Job search journey

Let’s be real, job searching is hard! We’ve got a degree, maybe a few, now it’s time to face the real world. Most of our productive lives will be spent working, so why work at a place that doesn’t spark your passion or interests? Finding a job that you truly enjoy is something we should all strive for. Providing for yourself (and your family) through a job that you’re passionate about will lead to a more satisfying and meaningful life.

Waterloo and Wanderlust

It’s hard to believe that just over one year ago I was writing my final university exam and saying goodbye to friends as I packed up my apartment. Like most new graduates, I wasn’t sure where I was headed or what I wanted to do, but I knew that, with my Waterloo degree and a bit of determination, the possibilities ahead of me were limitless.

An event review: Family Day with the Blue Jays

One of the great things about moving to Waterloo 28 years ago to attend UW, and basically never leaving, is the sense of community and continuity that comes with living near your alma mater. As my 10-year-old son Alex has grown up here in Waterloo, he’s been able to experience some of the campus spirit that his dad took part in over the years. (Not *that* kind of campus spirit; he hasn’t been to the Bombshelter yet.)

Career Action Chronicles: Assessments

Having done a few assessments now, I can speak first-hand about how great they are for those of you looking for a career path or those who would like to change your career direction. The most important take away from any assessment is to have developed a better understanding of who you are. Knowing your desires, strengths, personality, and values are all key components to finding a job that suits you.
