Career Networking Breakfast

Did you know attending the career events allows you to meet a number of professionals and learn about a number of careers in a short amount of time?

Career Networking Breakfast

This event provides Social Sciences students in Levels III or IV with the opportunity to learn about potential career paths and the value of a Social Sciences degree by connecting them with a variety of industry professionals from the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors.

We invite 10-12 professionals from a variety of disciplines to engage with students to showcase the diverse careers that are available to Social Sciences graduates and to build and enhance your networking skills, which are instrumental in career exploration and job searching.

The Career Networking Breakfast takes place every other year and will be offered again in the 2019-2020 academic year.
