Career Week

for Graduate Students & Post-Doctoral Fellows 

October 19 - 23, 2015

Discover your career pathway!

Hosted by School of Graduate Studies

This is our second year of hosting Career Week and will take place from October 19 to 23, 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.

During the week 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 23 from 4 to 6 pm at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre. 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. 

Registration will not be open until the Fall. When registring for the reception and for all the workshops, please use your Queen's NetID.
