Carson Keever is a pretty lucky lady. In a job market notorious for part-time, unstable work, this SFU doctoral graduate currently holds a continuing faculty position in the department of Biology in Kwantlen Polytechnic University--a feat which is particularly remarkable given that Vancouver is one of the most competitive cities in her field.

However life wasn’t always this good.

Three years ago Carson was ready to take any work she could get—including teaching online courses that demanded massive prep work but that could be cancelled at the last minute.

Desperate to build her career, Carson was did the one thing her academic colleagues described only in horror stories.

Want to find out what it was—and how it could be a career-maker for you too?

Come to the Academic Career Panel to find out!
