Career Panels and Networking Events

We welcome numerous professionals – many of them Laurier alumni – each year to speak at career-related events. We ask our guests to share career information and advice with students. By attending these sessions, you will:

  • Learn more about a potential career path of interest to you (e.g., job responsibilities; work culture; skills, personality and interests required to succeed; future trends; etc.).
  • Learn about career options you may not have previously considered.
  • Build your professional network and open up future opportunities to connect (networking is critical when career planning or job searching).

Career Speaker Series will resume Fall 2021. Examples of past career panels include:

  • Careers in Social Work
  • Careers in Marketing
  • Careers in Mental Health
  • Careers in Sales
  • Careers in Communications
  • Careers in User Experience
  • Careers in Data Analytics
  • Careers in Research
  • Careers in Healthcare
