Arts Speaker Series - “Connecting students with people who care(er): Post-secondary professionals as ‘Everyday Career Influencers’”

Arts Speaker Series - “Connecting students with people who care(er): Post-secondary professionals as ‘Everyday Career Influencers’”

Online
Microsoft Teams

Description:

Dr. Candy Ho, Dept. of Educational Studies  

While students have cited enhancing career prospects and career advancements as a major motivation behind pursuing post-secondary education, numerous studies have found that students rarely visit their university or college career centres. Instead, they are likely to seek career help from those they trust within their personal network, such as professors, academic advisors, and volunteer managers; these Career Influencers often informally provide career advice, guidance, and counselling without career development background and training.

All presentations will take place from 1-2 PM via Microsoft Teams. Please email artsevents@kpu.ca to RSVP to the virtual event. A Microsoft Teams link to the event will be sent to registrants two days prior to the event date.
