November is Career Month
Programming begins with a kickoff event on November 1
Start creating opportunities to do the work you love and create the life you want to live. Career Month is your chance to explore career pathways, meet with industry professionals and make connections to help you gain experience that will build your marketable skills. There are over 20 events on campus to help you navigate your career decisions, connect with industry partners or learn what the current labour market is like in Manitoba.
The fun starts on November 1 with the Career Month Kick-off in UMSU University Centre. Grab a snack and a coffee, and learn about the full suite of activities happening on and off campus. Take time during this month to reflect on who you are, how your personality and interests fit with your education and future work possibilities, and explore opportunities to help you continue to build your career. Remember, your career starts before graduation, so learn how to actively plan, keep your eyes open for opportunities and create opportunity for yourself during your degree.
Start designing your career early!
