Career Conversations

The Career Conversations Series, sponsored by York Alumni Relations, is a series of panel and webinar discussions that focus on various fields of interest and are designed to provide students with an opportunity to connect with employers and alumni; gain insight into areas of interest to them; and get advice from professionals currently working in the field. During these sessions Employer and Alumni participants will address and discuss questions from a Career Centre moderator, students and new graduates on topics such as:

  • their personal career paths
  • how their university education is relevant to their particular position
  • the realities of the sectors they work in
  • strategies for entering the sector
  • opportunities within their fields
  • resources for connecting with professionals in that field

Register for these panels on the Career Centre's online system using Passport York (you must sign up for an account on the system before you will be able to register for any events).
