Diversity & Inclusion

I and the whole staff at work attended a training last week on a "narrative" method of career counselling led by Mark Franklin, the practice leader of a company called Career Cycles.  It's inspired me to write a bit about narrative therapy in general, especially as it applies to career development.

Dave's Diary: Dear High School Class of 2011...

Dave's Diary

Hi.  It's me, Dave - I was one of the smiley, energetic people handing out popcorn last night when you came up to visit SFU for our open house, "Info Eve."  Congratulations, by the way!  It's a pretty cool experience to be offered acceptance to any university, let alone the top Canadian comprehensive school as ranked by Macleans.  So, you've got good reason to feel proud of yourselves.  I really could see that on a lot of your and your parents' faces last night.  Way to go!

Into the Wilderness: My Co-op experience with Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, Yukon Region

Life Experience

The Yukon was always a mystery to me; something I didn’t know very much about. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and have never been up North before. I was unsure what to expect for my four month long co-op term with INAC, let alone what Whitehorse had in store for me. But a place that held beautiful blue lakes and rivers, and breathtaking mountaintop views, I could not have asked for a better place to spend my fifth co-op term.

“Get paid to travel” seems like one of those weird internet scams that you probably shouldn’t click on. But as an au pair abroad, I wasn't paying for accommodation or food, I was meeting other young people, and I was receiving a weekly paycheque!
