5 WORKSHOPS

What should you expect from each workshop?

Be ready for action and interaction, as you will listen little, think hard about your interests, strengths and potential, and practice what you’ve learned. 

WCA will be an experiential learning approach: rather than lots of theoretical presentations, we believe in the learning by doing method, followed by reflection (also helped by personalized feedback, mentorship, and exchanges with fellow attendees).

 

Our goal? Support students transition successfully into the job market! 

No need to wait to finish your studies to get work relevant experience!

We will show you that you have lots of opportunities during your university time to develop many skills and experiences employers are looking for!

Each workshop is a 2-hour mix of: 

  • Tutorials: practical and hands-on exercises will help you reflect on your aspirations and learning pathway; you will take home a lot of resources that will help reply to all the career questions you might have!

  • Personalized feedback: advance faster in your professional development thanks to simulations, CV-checks, and personal mentoring.

  • Testimonials: young professionals from the field will tell their career stories so you can have a behind the scenes look at different professions or selection processes in the job market.
