Are you looking for a job in Canada but are not sure where to begin? In this first session of the workshop series, you will be introduced to the career planning process, the importance of self-awareness, how to identify your skill-set and how to build a strong Canadian resume.*

After attending this session of the workshop series, you will:

  • Understand the stages of the career planning process and the importance of self-awareness and career research
  • Gain an understanding of how to identify your sought-after transferable skills acquired from local or international experience
  • Learn about the different types of resumes, how to build a strong resume and cover letter, and identify the important elements to exclude from your resume in Canada

*In registering for this workshop, students will be invited to share and discuss career related thoughts and experiences as they feel comfortable. As such, participants are asked to respect the experiences shared by one another while maintaining each other’s confidentiality to create a comfortable learning experience for everyone.

This workshop is offered by Career Services and is intended for international graduate students, although all students are welcome to attend.
