"How can I find out more?"

"[I started an acapella group at SFU] because I wanted other people to experience the joy I get from it. It doesn’t require any instruments – you can bring it anywhere with you.

In the past I’ve been more comfortable with taking instructions from someone else, rather than being in a position of leadership. So things like coordinating and organizing events are new to me – but it’s a continual learning experience!"

Mathew
Computing Science + Math Alumni
Musican Director/Founder of SFUnison Acapella

“I have a passion for working with kids, and I tutored kids of all ages for many years before joining the SFU Camps team as a volunteer.

When I first started volunteering, I was so nervous to address a large group of campers, but over time I’ve gained the confidence needed to overcome that fear.

Developing my leadership skills in this way has enhanced my life in so many other areas as well.”

Reality:
University
Career
Make connections with as many people as you can
CAREER DEVELOPMENT
Interests defined by "tests" & assessments
New Paradigm
Old Paradigm
TOP REASONS
Everything is in your control
Deficients & shortcomings
Linear Path
Career is the course of life

Chance events play a role

Indecision is sensible

Interests, values, skills, etc. defined by life experiences

Possibility, hope, curiosity, choice & open-mindedness

Zig-zagging
Indecision is not okay
Career is a life long "job"
What percentage of 25 year olds maintain the same career expectations they had when they were 17?
