“The best careers advice to give to the young is, Find out what you like doing best and get someone to pay you for doing it.” – Katherine Whitehorn
We live in a confusing world. Most parents and high school students agree that a university education is essential to having a successful career. As a result, parents and students are feeling enormous pressure to decide on:
– what university program to take
– where to attend university
– what high school courses to take to prepare them for university
– what to do to keep the grades competitive
– what volunteer activities to participate in
– what career to plan for
– what to do to win scholarships
– how to learn about career options and opportunities
– whether to take the SAT in Canada, ACT, etc.
– whether to attend university outside of Canada
– whether a “year off” is a good idea
– what about that Queen’s Personal Statement of Experience
This is enough to make anybody sick with anxiety.
This seminar has been organized by John Richardson (Author of – Mastering The Personal Statement) and presented by Rick Hayward who is a retired University of Toronto academic counselor. In a manner reminiscent of “Tuesdays with Morrie”, Rick will give you guidance, answer your questions, and reduce your anxiety.
Hope to see you there on January 30

P.S. Rick is the best academic counselor I have ever known. A common student comment after talking with Rick is:
“I feel so much better!”
