Career Coaching Opportunity: Appointments available to book

Several staff members on campus participated in UBC's Coaching for Career Influencers Program in 2019/20.  As part of our ongoing development as learner coaches, we are required to engage in 30-minute career coaching conversations.  These mutually beneficial one-to-one coaching conversations, exclusive to graduate students or postdoctoral fellows, offer you a safe and confidential space to explore a concern or challenge you are experiencing and to work with you towards defining actionable goals for yourself, all while helping us enhance our coaching skills.
