Regular workshops for grad students and postdocs
The Centre for Career Action offers several workshops and events designed specifically for graduate students and postdocs. These workshops are focused on topics related to Career Exploration, Networking, Job Search Strategies and Documents, and Further Education. We also host annual conferences to prepare PhD students and Postdocs for the academic and non-academic job search.
For our upcoming workshops, please visit our calendar, and be sure that it's set to the "Graduate Students" tab so you may see both the grad-student workshops as well as the workshops open to undergraduates.
