Requirements and language
Each participant will be required to complete the TRIMA psychometric questionnaire in advance of the workshop (details will be provided after registration), and to have documented their specific skills (disciplinary knowledge, technical skills, etc.).
Participants will need to have a good command of English, both written and oral. The questionnaire may be completed and results received in English or in French. The workshop will be conducted in English however, and will be based on the English version of the participant's TRIMA results.
Given the nature of the workshop content, participants will need to have a reliable audio and video connection in order to participate and share their experience. Further details will be provided closer to the date of the workshop.
This workshop is designed to follow on from the Career Café. If you have not yet attended a Career Café with the Graduate Campus, you will be asked on registration to explain when and how you have already received career-related counseling or training, whether in a group or individually.
