Skills for success aims to equip students with the skills and knowledge that will help them succeed during their time in university and their life following graduation. More importantly, the programmes offered through this portfolio help individuals build their confidence and explore themselves. Skills for success are not just about today, they are about crafting a repertoire of applicable, relevant and transferable life-long skills. Make the most of your time here at Innis by learning and developing new skills, while honing your current skills.
In order to empower students to explore career options and develop self-directed career management skills, the Career Centre has embedded career support at Innis College to meet diverse student needs. Through providing career advising, career-related capacity building workshops, programs to explore careers, employer events and job postings, on-campus recruitment and resources, the Career Centre strives to help students attain renewable competencies, career clarity and confidence for a lifetime of productive and engaged citizenship.
Jon Bray, your local Career Educator, will be in the INNIS RESIDENCE LOBBY on MONDAYS from 5 PM to 7 PM to help bring coherence to the complexity of your career development process. If you have questions about your resume, finding work, exploring careers, or any other topic, Jon will be here to help. No preparation is required for drop-in appointments, just bring your questions or concerns. Jon has worked at the Career Centre for 3 years, and been working in career development since 2009. Jon graduated from McMaster University with an HBA in Peace Studies & Philosophy, and is currently in the process of completing his Masters In Education at OISE. Contact Jon at email@example.com.
