The after life - post grad seminars help with future planning

Convocation and graduation plans are in high gear for many U of T students, but the change from classes to career can bring angst and uncertainty.  That’s why U of T Scarborough is offering two free seminars to help ease the transition to working life.

“The U of T Scarborough experience is a lifelong one.  We believe in investing in the success of our graduates.  To that end, we are offering the Life After Graduation Series as a free service to our newest graduates,” explained Kim Tull, Manager of Alumni Relations, who is organizing the event. 

Two motivational workshops are being held on Wednesday, June 6th.  Focusing on developing career winning attitudes and approaches, the workshops will provide hints and tips about career planning, communications skills, leadership and entrepreneurial attitudes and problem-solving.

Seminar speakers feature U of T Scarborough alumnus Sadi Khan, who graduated five years ago with a Bachelor of Commerce degree.  The award winning community advocate works for IBM Canada and is also pursuing part-time studies towards his MBA at the Schulich School of Business. 

The second speaker is Ellen Goldhar, a popular life coach, author and speaker.  Golhar is set to host her own television show this Fall.

The unique seminar series is a first for the university.  “The program is designed to help assist in the transition from student life to working life. We hope to enable our graduates to make better decisions in the next stage of their lives,” says Tull.

The St. George campus held its program earlier this month. The Mississauga campus will hold a similar program later in the summer.  The U of T Scarborough workshops run next Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Council Chambers in the Arts and Administration Building.  Registration details can be found at:  www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~advancement/alumni/lifeaftergrad.html.
