Good news everyone, Twitter Tuesdays are back!

We had so much fun this summer that we decided to do it again for the Fall. Starting September 17th, we’ll be back online every other Tuesday at 2pm, along with Career Services and some exciting guests.

If you missed out on our Summer Series, check out the topics covered and chat recaps now.

Our Twitter chats are a great opportunity to not only connect with other career-minded SFU students, but also with SFU staff, career advisors, and other guests. Plus, you’re free to ask any questions you have related to the weekly topic, our hosts will be glad to help connect you with useful resources.
