Reporting Live from Career Week (well… on Friday Oct. 17th)

Ladies and gentlemen, grad students of all disciplines, Career Week is upon us at Queen’s.  As both Amanda and Sharday alluded to, October can a hectic time for grad students; one in which we often find ourselves planning ‘the next steps’ of our degree and/or career.

In my September post I discussed the Non-Academic Work Search Module offered through MyGradSkills.ca (if you haven’t checked it out, do it!).  This week, I will be writing about the Career Week seminar titled: The Employable YOU – Identifying your Program Specific Skills, which is taking place this Friday, October 17th from 2-4pm.  Based on the description of this workshop, I anticipate that the content will be a nice extension of the MyGradSkills module.  I’m especially keen on hearing the panellists’ stories about their respective journeys from academia to a non-academic career (I’m sure their paths were not linear).

I recommend giving up a couple of hours at some point this week to attend the Career Week seminars… and if you attend Friday’s event, come say hi!
