The Centre for Career Action acknowledges that our work is on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our institution is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.The active work by the University of Waterloo toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
Whether you are considering a career in industry or academia, having a broad skill set and being able to recognize the value of your skills is important for success. Attend this workshop to explore the skills you already have and to create an action plan for skill development during your graduate studies.
Note, this workshop has significant overlap with the Foundations workshop for the Professional Skills Foundations (PSF) program and is recommended for students who are not participating in the PSF program.
In this interactive workshop, you will discuss the value of making connections as part of a job search strategy. You will explore networking strategies and identify your own action plan.
