November is Canada Career Month, and the team in Career Development & Experiential Learning (CDEL), a department of the Office of Experiential Learning, is celebrating.
Any student who attends the peer career advising drop-in hours or a career development workshop during the month of November will automatically be entered into a draw for one of two $50 giftcards to the Campus Bookstore. Students can find the November workshop listing and peer drop-in hours at: www.uwindsor.ca/careermonth.
For faculty and staff interested in joining in the celebration, CDEL will lead a professional development workshop entitled “Supporting the Career Development of UWindsor Students” at 9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 21. Participants will learn about approaches to career development, common challenges, and key messaging for facilitating meaningful career conversations with students. More details and registration are available at: http://cleo.uwindsor.ca/hr/workshops/3/#wkshp-360.
Canada Career Month is a nationwide celebration of careers that takes place every November to advance the agenda of improving access to services and education so that Canadians are better prepared to develop their careers and transition into the labour market.
“The goals of Canada Career Month are exactly aligned to ours as the centralized career centre here on campus,” says Kerri Zold, manager of Career Development & Experiential Learning. “This year’s theme is Explore the Possibilities and we’re encouraging students, faculty, and staff to do just that by taking a moment to find out more about what we do and how we can support them.”
