CIC Edmonton: International Affairs Speed Networking Event

January 31, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EST


Are you a University of Alberta student or a recent graduate who wants to learn about potential career paths in international affairs? The University of Alberta Career Centre and The Canadian International Council will bring together an engaging panel of mentors to help you explore a career working abroad or working in international relations.
In honour of the International Week theme we will be talking about transitions in your career and how to make the most of your career exploration.

As a participant, you are invited to rotate to different tables and talk with each mentor. The session will conclude with a networking reception where light refreshments will be served.
The University of Alberta Career Centre employs a planned happenstance model in our career education. We believe that although you might have a career plan, seemingly insignificant events in your life can have a big impact on your life and your plans and being flexible in your plans is important to career development. Reflect on happenstance. What seemingly insignificant event has changed the course of your education or career goals?

The Canadian International Council (CIC) is Canada’s foreign relations council. It is an independent, member-based council established to strengthen Canada’s role in global affairs. The CIC is generously supported by a network of Canadian business leaders from all economic sectors. Our corporate sponsors recognize that the CIC’s mission to advance Canadian global engagement and to generate innovative policy ideas aligns with their agendas for strategic and sustainable growth. The CIC is further supported by a large constituency of Canadians who believe that Canada’s foreign policy directly impacts the lives and prosperity of its citizens. The CIC’s digital media platform, OpenCanada.org, is Canada’s hub for international affairs, linking our stakeholders in Canada and beyond.
