Are you a newly licensed dietitian embarking on your professional journey and wondering which direction to go? Perhaps you are mid-career and not feeling as passionate or inspired by your work as you used to.
Or perhaps it is later in your career and you are thinking about the last big career adventure before you retire. The “average” Canadian can expect to have five to ten careers in their lifetime. Use this session to consider your own career transition and learn how to apply transferable skills in other contexts to enhance career satisfaction. Explore your career path using validated self-assessment tools and begin to assess skill gaps, identify tools and resources to address these gaps, and develop an action plan to begin career transition.
