Next Steps Conference

January 25-27, 2022

This inspiring online conference provides a great way for Faculty of Arts & Science students and new graduates to build their professional networks, explore a variety of careers and prepare for life after graduation.

With a range of speakers, career exploration panels and networking opportunities, Next Steps helps participants explore their options – including those they didn’t even know they had.

There will be limited spots available, so access is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Conference details, including panel topics, may be found here as well as on the Next Steps Conference website.

As in 2021, this year’s conference will be hosted online and run over three days: January 25 to 27. Unique panels will be offered each day, and once registrants are in the conference online hub, delegates may pick and choose to attend the panels that interest them and fit their schedule.

Panels will feature successful alumni, moderated by a career educator, and a Q&A session followed by breakout rooms for networking.
