Career Kickstarter Program

The Career Kickstarter Program is tailored to help you establish your specific career goals & build a solid foundation to strategize a concrete action plan to kickstart your career. This program will help you clarify ‘what you want to do’ and offer you the confidence and support on ‘how to get there’.  

Since most official internships are offered during year 3 of university, it is recommended to complete this program before the start of year 3 to best optimize your career options. You will complete below 4 modules within a 4 month period, and receive ongoing support until you land on an internship position.   Any other students or active job seekers can expedite the course in a shorter timeframe depending on your needs.
