Career Conversations Panel: Discovering Careers as a Mature Student

Connect with accomplished professionals who were Mature Students at York University!
Meet alumni that are currently enjoying their careers and get the inside scoop on what it’s really like to work in this field. During this panel professionals will share their personal stories about breaking into the field, how their career paths took them from graduation to where they are now, what knowledge, skills, and experience helped them succeed in their jobs. The panel will be moderated by one of the Career Centre’s team members and followed by an open forum where students will have an opportunity to ask the panellists their own questions.
Career Conversations panels are a series of panel and webinar discussions that focus on various fields of interest and are designed to provide students with an opportunity to connect with York alumni; gain insight into areas of interest to them, and get advice from professionals currently working in the field.
Alumni and other professionals share:

Their personal career paths;
How their university education is relevant to their particular position;
The realities of sectors they work in;
Strategies for entering the sector;
Opportunities within their fields;
Resources for connecting with professionals in that field.
