Skills for success aims to equip students with the skills and knowledge that will help them succeed during their time in university and their life following graduation. More importantly, the programmes offered through this portfolio help individuals build their confidence and explore themselves. Skills for success are not just about today, they are about crafting a repertoire of applicable, relevant and transferable life-long skills. Make the most of your time here at Innis by learning and developing new skills, while honing your current skills.
In order to empower students to explore career options and develop self-directed career management skills, the Career Centre has embedded career support at Innis College to meet diverse student needs. Through providing career advising, career-related capacity building workshops, programs to explore careers, employer events and job postings, on-campus recruitment and resources, the Career Centre strives to help students attain renewable competencies, career clarity and confidence for a lifetime of productive and engaged citizenship.
Join Kate Bowers, Career Educator, every Tuesday 12-2pm in the Innis Residence Lobby to chat about career exploration, job search strategies, applying to grad schools and much more! You can also email her at firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment.
We have one Communication Café right here at Innis College in the Events Room on Wednesdays from 5-6:30pm. These sessions are free, drop-in, and snacks are provided.
