    How do you plan for a career in a fast-paced, ever-changing and complex world? Participants at the first ever Career-a-thon dove straight into this question at the day-long career-planning “crash course” on Saturday, March 7.

    Guided by a team of career advisors, students reflected on their interests, values and skills, considering how these aspects might contribute to their career goals and aspirations. Independent activities and group discussion facilitated their own career exploration with peers throughout the day.
