PowerSkills 2021 And You – A Guide To Help You Maximize Your Experience


From January 21 to 23, 2021, Career Advising and Transition Services (CATS) will host PowerSkills 2021 – the next level free online career summit!


If you’re reading this, you’re likely a student of the School of Continuing Studies, and you’re learning remotely. With COVID security measures active in most parts of the world, your opportunities for in-person networking are limited. After 10 months of living through the challenges of a pandemic, you may be restless, bored, lonely and uninspired. If any of this sounds familiar, then PowerSkills may be just what you need!


While you can certainly be a casual participant, and jump into some sessions that maybe of interest, you can make most of your experience with a little (1) planning, (2) strategic execution and (3) follow-up.

Here is a quick look at some of our speakers, visit the Powerskills website for more details:
