The Career Exploration Group is a six-week-career exploration program aimed to empower students to recognize, foster, and apply their interests and strengths towards the selection and achievement of their career goals. Collegiality is a key feature of the program and is aimed to encourage professional relationships that foster community and sense of belonging.

As a part of the program, students will:

  • Complete three assessments (Career Cruising, Strong Interest Inventory, StrengthsFinder);
  • Develop a career portfolio including career mind maps, assessment results, self-reflection questionnaires;
  • Learn how to make informed decisions about their career exploration and employment goals.


Spaces for the program are limited. Please apply by emailing with your resume and cover letter highlighting why you're interested to participate in the program. The deadline to apply is February 5, 2020.
