Professional Development Opportunites for HSS Students:

Spring 2020

Virtual Career Workshops

Career Advisors across Memorial Univerisity's St. John's campus have partnered to bring students a series of career development/job search workshops online. The content of the workshops will address ways of building job search techniques and conducting career exploration using online resources. Students can choose to attend one virtual workshop or attend them all. To see a list of upcoming workshops, go to Memorial's Student Life Events Calendar.


BA grads work in a wide variety of diverse careers – from non-profits to hospitality, from advertising to government – and yet the myth of the BA as barista persists.

To combat this fake news, we're bringing students real-life stories of BA grads, including where they are working and how they got there.

Join host (and Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences student) Gillian Aylward LIVE on Facebook as she chats with Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences alumni and gets key info about how to forge your own unique career path.
