How can you use your graduate degree to get a job you love?

Designing your Life will connect you with SFU alumni who have created interesting, non-linear careers that took them beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries.

At this event, we aim to highlight unique career possibilities that exist for advanced degree holders, helping you envision possibilities for yourself you may never have considered before. You might be surprised to learn how one's "career" might look very different than what you thought while in grad school. 

The event will consist of a plenary session where you'll be introduced to the panelists, followed by three roundtable sessions where you'll have the opportunity to discuss face-to-face with three of the panelists. The session wraps up with a networking session where attendees can mix and mingle with all of the panelists. 

  • Date: Tuesday, February 7
  • Time: 5 – 8pm
  • Venue: Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue
  • Cost:  $12.00 – Early Bird   |   $20.00 – Regular 
  • Includes: Light refreshments & one drink ticket. Additional beverages available for purchase. 

Get your tickets now! Early birds will have the option to choose their top three choices that they would like to sit with during the roundtable sessions. While we will try our best, we cannot guarantee that you will be placed with all of your top picks. Early bird tickets are now on sale until Friday, January 27.

For more info on our panelists, please visit the Designing  Your Life event webpage.
