GSB hosts a career Impulse Day

The GSB will hold a career planning day, presented by career consultant Andrew Bramley, on November 20. The workshop aims to kick-start a job search process for attendees. The Impulse Day workshop offers individuals a chance to find direction to the career that suits their skills and personality, and will provide them with the tools to pursue that career effectively. The programme is helpful for students who may wish to clarify what they want from their careers, graduates who want to make career changes or at a crossroads in their careers, or anyone wanting to find a career they like. It is also helpful for partners and spouses of those who may either be questioning their own careers or are at a crossroads following retrenchment. Contact Morea Josias on tel 406 1340 for details.
