"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." Confucius.

We spend most of our time at work so it is important to do something that we love. We live in a world of possibilities, but we must create the opportunities we seek. Knowing yourself is the first step to success.

If you are a university student or a recent graduate, this workshop will help you build the skills you need to get employed!
