We also offer a free career exploration group workshop for current Douglas College students during the Fall and Winter semesters. For the winter 2019 semester, we are offering two workshops, one at the New Westminster campus and one at the Coquitlam campus. These workshops run for two to three sessions, and focus on learning about ourselves in relation to career choice, discussing resources for researching career options, and learning about career decision making. Dates and times are as follows:
New Westminster Campus workshop: Jan 31st & Feb 7th, 10:30 - 12:20, Room N4219 on the first day, Room N4223 on the second day
Coquitlam Campus workshop: Jan 31st, Feb 7th, and Feb 14th, 12:30 - 2:20, Room B2020
