DSR Alumni Career Panel

When and Where

Thursday, January 28, 2021 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm


The Backpack to Briefcase (b2B) program connects students with alumni who have successfully transitioned out of university and are navigating diverse career paths.

DSR students will have the opportunity to hear from a distinguished panel of DSR alumni who will discuss their own career paths, opportunities for graduates and the realities of the current job market. Students will come away with a sense of the many careers available after graduation, and the proactive steps they can take for their future.

This session is hosted online over Zoom. Once you sign up, briefing notes and additional event information will be forwarded.

Please register here.

Event details will be shared with you after registration. We look forward to having you join this panel. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to: alumni.artsci@utoronto.ca
