Discover your career pathway!

Hosted by School of Graduate Studies

This year’s Career Week will take place from October 14 to 17, with workshops focusing on strategies for career success in academia and beyond. The sessions feature practical tips and discipline-specific advice that you can use to develop your career in research/academia, public sector, non-profit or industry.

In sessions like Strategies for finding work using LinkedIn, What employers want: the public, private & non-profit sectors, Innovation & entrepreneurship or The employable you, you will learn how to identify your many skills and how to translate them into future employment opportunities.

The final event of the week will be a networking reception on October 17 from 4 to 6 pm at the Elspeth Baugh Fireside Room, Ban Righ Hall. Meet local employers and alumni of Queen's graduate programs to expand your network and explore career opportunities. In this guided networking event, each employer or alumnus will have one tip on finding a career you never knew you were trained to do. 

When registering for the reception and for all the workshops, please use your Queen's NetID.
