Career academy aimed at graduate students

The Faculty of Graduate Studies, Career Development and Experiential Learning, and EPICentre are working together to host the second annual Propel XL, a professional development event for graduate students.

The event will give students the opportunity to learn from and be inspired by keynote speaker Debbie Landers, a retired senior executive with IBM, reflection and communication activities facilitated by OneLifeTools, and successful alumni with graduate degrees.

Attendees will have the option to choose between two panels, one of entrepreneurs and another of traditionally employed recent graduates. They will be able to have their LinkedIn profile headshots taken by a professional photographer and enjoy lunch as they mingle with their fellow grad students.

The event will take place April 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
