We also offer a free career exploration group workshop for current Douglas College students during the Fall and Winter semesters. Generally we offer 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 for Fall term 2019 workshops are as follows:
Workshop 1: Oct. 15 & 22, 2019, Coquitlam Campus, 1:30-3:30pm, Room B2040
Workshop 2: Oct. 30, Nov. 6, & Nov. 13, 2019, New West Campus, 2:30-4:30pm, Room S0640
If interested, please register by calling our receptionists at 604-527-5486 (New West), or 604-777-6185 (Coquitlam).

More detailed career planning is offered (usually in Fall and Winter semesters) through our one semester credit course HUMD 1130.
