Career Expo launches with an open house — Faculty and staff invited to attend

Students who are looking for information about their career options frequently turn to faculty and staff members for guidance. It’s a logical first step for students to seek advice from those they trust. But faculty and staff may need some support of their own to help the students who come to them with career questions. That’s where the Career Development and Co-operative Education (CDCE) office can help.

On January 21, 2008, CDCE is inviting faculty and staff to an open house to learn about the career-related programs, events and activities that are available to students. The event will provide the Carleton University community with an opportunity to meet the department’s career counsellors, tour the Resource Centre, and more.

“Our department offers a comprehensive collection of career and employment services to equip students with the tools to make successful career choices,” says Dawn Legault, director of CDCE. “The open house will allow us to showcase our programming and let the university community know where they can send their students to receive professional career support.”

The open house is the kickoff event that will launch the first annual Career Expo, which runs from January 21 to February 1. The two-week Expo is free for all Carleton students and will feature employment workshops, networking breakfasts, employer panel discussions, a career fair with a reéseumé review blitz and more. In total, there are more than 20 events planned, many of which are tailored to students in specifi c faculties.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to drop in to the open house on January 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in 401 Tory Building. For more information, readers can visit
