Connecting the Dots: The Relationship Between a Degree and a Career

Presenter: Tony Botelho, Simon Fraser University


Tony Botelho is the Director of Simon Fraser University’s award-winning Career and Volunteer Services. A popular speaker, in 2014 he was awarded the Rob Shea Research Award by the Canadian Association of Career Educators and Employers (CACEE) for his research on the role of career education in the contemporary university environment.

Session Description

In this fun and engaging session, the value of traditional career planning approaches will be questioned given the realities of today’s ever changing and complex world. Dynamic and flexible approaches to preparing for the future will be argued for as will the need to get students to just do stuff. Time permitting, some humour might also be included.
