In this session you will learn about current career counselling theories and how they are put into practice in the pilot of Simon Fraser University's Job Search Success with Fraser International College students who are on academic probation.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Apply international, psychological and career foundational frameworks to your work;
  • Relate an EAL/ESL curriculum-design model to your own work;
  • Appreciate how career interventions affect students from international pathways
