Event description

Description

The Let’s Get to Work symposium is Manitoba’s only Career Development focused event dedicated to demographics, research, and current labour market trends.

The goal is to provide a solutions-focused space where the intersections between career development, employment, and education can be explored and a greater sense of shared responsibility can be found.

The event provides a vehicle for insightful discussion of Career Development, one which we hope will bring cutting-edge research and discussion annually to Manitoba.

Let’s Get to Work symposium provides an excellent venue in which to showcase your business, research and practice.
