Have you ever thought of working for the government? Would you like to take this opportunity to network with representatives from the government? SFU Career Services and the Arts and Social Sciences Co-op is co-hosting a signature event called, What Can I Do In Government? on Wednesday, November 17th, 2010. Session one starts at 12:30pm. Session 2 starts at 2:30pm. For more information, please check out Symplicity at http://www.sfu.ca/wil/symplicity/ (SFU students only).
At this event, you will be able to connect with representatives working in the federal, provincial, and municipal public service. This event will be a Philosopher Cafe’s approach where students are encouraged to ask questions about the career and the working life in the government. You will also get the chance to interact with different table hosts and peers because you will be moving from table to table at the event during the session.
Who knows, this might be a great networking opportunity where you can find your career path!
Are you unsure about your future and your career path? Don’t Worry! Most of us are at the stage where we are still deciding which directions we would like to head towards in our career life. We are still students and we still have time!
This does not mean that we should procrastinate and hope that our dream job will occur in front of your eyes. This means that it is time to get out there and explore different opportunities that lies ahead of you. Since we are students, we still have time to figure out what we want to do in our lives and what we truly enjoy doing. Therefore, students can start getting involved with school clubs or volunteering off-campus to figure out what they enjoy doing. Students should take initiatives by stepping outside the box and allowing themselves to explore and experience different opportunities. As a senior student at SFU, I believe that getting involved with school clubs is extremely beneficial as it has allow myself to figure out my interest. By volunteering and staying involved with school clubs I have . .
- Gained experience and skills in various fields including: leadership, time management, team work, relationship building, and the list goes on….
- Made good relations with new friends, faculty members and staff around the SFU community
- Enhanced my resume
- Figured out my interest and strengths
- Each student club,organization, or union allows students to elaborate their skills and find their interest. Within a student club, it is compiled of students that are all learning, enjoying, growing, and sharing ideas together! Don’t be afraid! Get involved and stay connected now! AIESEC SFU is a great way to start!
I’m sure everyone has different experiences with school clubs, what is your experience?
Imagine each one of us as a dot and when we connect all the dots together, we create a perfect picture!
