Dear UWOSA Members,

Further to Appendix G of our collective agreement, Human Resources will be providing Career Progression Sessions for UWOSA members. These sessions will be approximately 2.5 hours in length, and will be held in the Support Services Building, Room 4210.

Sessions will cover the following topics:

• What is my ideal job?
• What is important to me?
• What is work life balance for me?
• What do I have to offer?
• What do I do well?
• What have I consistently been recognized for?
• What would I like to stop doing?
• What am I willing to learn?
• Who needs my skills?
• What evidence do I have of my success record?
• Changing World of Work
• Future Direction of Work at Western – review of strategic directions for the University
• What can I do to prepare myself for the next career opportunity?

There will be a limit of 25 participants per session, and registration will be available to members on a first-come, first-served basis. If there is sufficient interest, future sessions will also be scheduled. Currently, the following sessions are scheduled:
