WCD&WP 2016


Career Professional Development Workshop

Tuesday 1 March 2016

University of Lethbridge

This full-day workshop will focus on navigating the transition to the next phase of your career and aligning your personal brand in the context of modern digital career profiling.

The event is being organized by the School of Graduate Studies and the NSERC CREATE AMETHYST Program at the University of Lethbridge, and also in partnership with the regional workshop series with the Canadian Remote Sensing Society Lethbridge Chapter and the Alberta Geomatics Group.

The day will be kicked off by a Keynote Address by Heather Petherick, Career Freedom Coach, and followed by a presentation by Career and Employment Services on Proactive Job Searching Strategies. There will also be ample opportunities for networking and interaction.

We are also planning to cap the day off with an opportunity to receive a professional personal photograph for your online profile!
