Seminar on success in non-standard professions on Jan. 28

Everyone’s familiar with the standard professions of doctor, lawyer, and engineer, but how do you train for a career as a biostatistician, patent agent or entrepreneur of your own start-up? Come to a seminar for FY students (and parents) about getting set for success in some careers you may not have considered, on Wednesday,  Jan. 28 from 8:30 a.m. to 9:25 a.m. in the lecture theatre.

A successful career in sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) starts with strategic choices in high school. They can give you a tremendous advantage in non-STEM careers as well. This seminar will focus on what you can do in Grades 11 and 12 to get set for a whole range of exciting careers.

  • High school courses that can give a big impact (in surprising places !)
  • Opportunities to develop valuable skills outside the classroom
  • How to start building a career network
  • Keeping your options open for a variety of career paths
