Register for our workshop series:
For all students with fewer than 60 units
Specifically designed for students with fewer than 60 credits, the Headstart Program is your time to reflect, assess, and explore what you could be doing now to make the most of your SFU experience while looking ahead to the future. We guide you through a process to help you gain clarity, identify possibilities you might want to pursue and to intentionally select activities you can do right away in pursuit of those opportunities. The earlier you start the better so why not start now and give yourself a 'head start' on your life after university.
For all students with more than 60 units
Register for our popular Classroom to Career series and set yourself up for success. We guide you through the key steps of launching your career - from gaining clarity on the types of opportunities you might want to pursue, to being more impactful in your resumes, cover letters and interviews. Discover how to really leverage LinkedIn and learn innovative approaches to work search that can help you find a job faster.
