Career Community Lounge
Welcome to the Career Community Lounge! This series of informal gatherings is a live meet-up of Career Community members, held regularly on each campus. We are offering a space to gain career information, ask your questions, meet other Career Community members and glean career insights. There will be a 15 minute talk presented by a special guest followed by a discussion and networking opportunities.
TOPIC: “Yes” – A career orientation where TRY wins over WHY!
Date: Friday, November 10, 2017
Location: ODLC, 215 Huron Street, Room 610
Special Guest: Heather Hines, Director, Undergraduate Programs & Student Services, Department of Management/Institute for Management & Innovation
Heather Hines has successfully managed a 20 year career in post-secondary education by choosing to say “YES” to opportunity whenever she could. Heather will share her tips for finding ways to create opportunities where none might exist, becoming comfortable with being uncomfortable and expanding your skill set through it all. Please come ready to discuss and debate. Say YES to attending this session. Hope to see you there.
Networking is valuable so plan on an extra 10-15 minutes if you wish to maximize this opportunity! (1:00-1:15 p.m.)
