Career Professionalism – Mitacs Workshop

September 25, 2017 at 8:45 AM to 5:00 PM

Location:482 MacOdrum Library
Audience:Current Students

When working with others, we often forget the impressions and impact we have on those around us. We often dismiss just how important our personal reputation impacts the way we are perceived and in turn, how others relate to us and ultimately, what opportunities are opened to us. From first impressions to making a lasting impression, this one-day workshop will provide you with tips, tricks and tools from dressing the part to knowing how to apply effective communication techniques and professional behaviour when working closely with others.
