Wondering where to get started with exploring career options? Not sure how to connect your graduate degree to career paths? This workshop will help students at the Masters and PhD level to identify areas of interest, articulate skills, and develop strategies for the job search process.  We will discuss how to identify the skills you possess, understand your values and strengths, and how to learn more about career paths of interest. By the end of the session, students will have an understanding of how to assess their fit with different jobs and how to approach the job search from an employer’s point of view.

Please note: This is a brown bag lunch session. Bring your own lunch!  

Facilitator

Danielle Barkley is a Career Educator who works with the Centre for Student Involvement and Careers to support graduate students at UBC. She completed her PhD in English literature at McGill University and has previous experience as a university instructor and writing consultant.
