Career Panels and Networking Events

We welcome numerous professionals – many of them Laurier alumni – to the Career Centre 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).

Examples of sessions we have hosted in the past:

  • Careers in Human Resources
  • Careers in Sales
  • Careers in Social Change
  • Careers for Students in Communication Studies, English, Geography, Criminology, Psychology, Sociology, etc.
  • Student+Alumni Career Night (Faculty of Science)

To view recordings of past panel events, please log in to Navigator and click Career Resources. If you have an idea for a career event relating to a specific academic discipline or industry, feel free to contact us at careercentre@wlu.ca or careerbrantford@wlu.ca.
