Careers Compass - Career Development workshop
A 2 day workshop specifically designed to help you align your post graduate journey with your career journey.
Work plays such a central role in our lives, so it is important to pause and consider whether our current actions are purposeful steps towards a rich career experience or whether we are too busy studying to focus on our careers! We invite you to this workshop which will give you the opportunity with a skilled facilitator to think about your future, your values, your family or social/community commitments and where you are going with your career.
