Career & Education Planning

What am I going to do with my life? Where will I fit in? What are my career options?

These are big questions. Some people seem to know exactly what they want to do with their lives. They choose the right college or university program and when they graduate, they go straight to the right job. The truth is that most CEGEP students aren’t that certain about what their educational and /or professional future looks like. It’s fairly common to have questions like the ones above. If you want to generate some answers to these big questions, consider signing up for one of our career workshops.
