Career Action Series

In partnership with the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (FGSR), the Career Centre will be offering monthly roundtable discussions to help graduate students and postdoctoral fellows take action on their careers. This is an opportunity for you to have your career questions answered. Participants are asked to prepare questions to add to the discussion sessions hosted by Advisors Tyree McCrackin and Andrea Spevak.

One hour PD credit is available for graduate students who complete the Google document post-event. Please confirm with your department/faculty that they will accept this session towards the PD requirement.

Registration is now open via campusBRIDGE.
