Professionalism in the workspace is an import quality in order to succeed in your career. But what does professionalism actually mean? Is it different inside and outside of academia? This workshop will help to demystify the often unspoken norms that can impact your success as a graduate student and in the workplace. Whether you’re new to the Canadian workplace, or just have limited work experience, this workshop can help you feel prepared to transition smoothly into a new role.
