Working with students from many different countries requires us to be nimble in our approach to career counselling and employment preparation. As career practitioners we need to develop a broad understanding of ways to facilitate trust, build cultural safety and prepare them for the Canadian workplace. In this interactive session we will explore effective practices for post-secondary career counselling and job readiness with international students. Join Fanshawe College and University of Victoria as we share creative and effective approaches to preparing international students for academic and career success.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Learn effective practices for career counselling and employment preparation with international students;
  • Learn creative and effective ways to facilitate trust and cultural safety with international students;
  • Deepen understanding of ways to prepare international students for the Canadian workplace
