Education Day Seminar: Interest-based Education and Career Planning

Making educational and career decisions can be fraught with worry and indecision. There are often competing factors, lack of information, and unhelpful career beliefs that get in the way. Come to this seminar at the 9th CPAC Education Day on Oct. 29 to get the suggestions from the Career Counsellor, Becky Robinson.

Interest-based Education and Career Planning

The goal of this seminar is to provide the information and techniques that will lead to lifelong career development, allowing each participant to make the most of their potential. This will be done by expanding awareness of opportunities, outlining helpful strategies for research, and introducing effective decision-making techniques.
