+ More about our interactive workshops
We use current career theories, resources and tools to enhance our curriculum and are designed to: engage in a creative process to get clear about who you are and what matters most, generate future possibilities and make well-informed decisions about work and life, develop a compass for creating, recognizing, and acting on opportunities to move forward, and align talents with the future world of work.
Workshops are built around questions students are asking: What kinds of work do I want to do and how do I want to make an impact? What is my story and how do I tell my story effectively? How can I get ready for a change and transition - and do it well? How can I get more career and work direction? What do I need to know to feel more confident with my skills and choices? What can I do now to get moving in a direction I like? Who am I? Who am I becoming?
