Questions générales

Intégrez-vous des renseignements sur le marché du travail et les résultats dans le développement des composantes spécifiques des programmes de perfectionnement professionnel pour les étudiants des cycles supérieurs?Broadly speaking, I believe a number of our workshops?especially those run by Career Services?would address this topic, but we don?t have any workshops or initiatives that are focused on this exclusively.

Souhaitez-vous ajouter d?autres informations?Both the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs and the International Student Services Office run Orientation events at which we publicize our professional development offerings. We also run a 3-Minute-Thesis (3MT) competition every year that is beneficial for the professional development of the students involved. On our Grad Research Link site we post opportunities for grad students to showcase their research or attend research-related events on campus.
