Parents as Career Coaches – Free Two-Part Event

When?5:30 pm - 8:30 pm, Thursday, June 14, 2018

Where?Cambrian College Student Life Centre


Please note that the registration for this particular event includes both the June 7 and June 14 sessions. This is a two-part presentation. Registration is free.

Don’t ask your kids, “What do you want to do when you grow up?” Ask them, “What problems or challenges in the world do you want to address?”

That is the advice from Jean-Philippe (JP) Michel, a career coach and consultant. His approach to career counselling is called the Challenge Method, and he encourages parents to get their children thinking about how to prepare to meet problems and opportunities, instead of just filling a job description.

Michel also says family members are the single largest influencer of a child’s career path, but parents need to know their role.

Learn more about the Challenge Method, and how you can support your child in planning for postsecondary education and their career.

  • Thursday, June 7, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., Parents
  • Thursday, June 14, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m, Parents and Students

Registrations are now closed.
