A solution-focused, hope-centered, and action-oriented approach to career design
Career Conversations provides an action-oriented career exploration opportunity specific to you. Over the course of four individualized one-hour sessions, you will gain insight about your skills, strengths, and values, and learn how to leverage these to create momentum and hope as you design a meaningful and fulfilling career.
Upon completion, you will be equipped with an action plan to take your career exploration to the next level.
The Career Conversations program is based on the principles taught in alumni UBC’s popular Career Agility course and is facilitated by our UBC Master’s level Counselling Psychology intern.
