Hello Grad Students and Post-Docs:
Lorna and I would like to wish all of you a Happy Holiday Season and a New Year filled with joy and plenty of career success. Be sure to come to the CEGEP Panel discussion this month where human resource professionals, academic deans & profs share what they look for when hiring their teachers, how they evaluate them and what other career options are available. You can also look forward to the Government Grad Cafe January 29th, 2009 where we will make networking with civil servants very easy.
In the meantime, much health, wealth and love, and the time to enjoy them.

Career Development Workshops for Grad Students
As the Graduate Student Career Advisor at CAPS, the number one question I am asked is “what kind of teaching opportunities are there in Quebec for a graduate student without a teaching license/certificate?” In this article, I will point out that there are many teaching opportunities in Montréal and Québec for you to consider.
For many of us, secure employment will be contingent upon successful research, teaching, and community service. Although many are cognizant of the "publish or perish" principle operating within the academy, some may not receive formal training regarding academic publishing. This article will provide a brief overview of some issues related to developing research, writing, and publishing.
