MITACS Skills Enhancement Program

MITACS would like to let you know about a one-day Time Management and Business Etiquette workshop we are offering to students on Thursday May 28th, 2009 from 8:30AM-4:30PM.
This full-day workshop offers of two separate opportunities to take advantage of:

8:30AM – 12:00PM: Get Organized: Time Management Workshop
Register Here.

If you ever wished the day was 36 hours long, this workshop is for you. Paradoxically, poor organizational habits are often created by the same technology that was designed to make us more effective – swamped with emails, meeting requests, and piles of paper makes getting ‘real’ work done even harder and increases stress levels and occurrences of burnout. This morning workshop will help tune your skills to help manage your time and priorities not only for work but your personal life to!

1:00PM – 4:30PM: Business Conduct Excellence: Enhance Your Career Success!
Register Here!!

We all want to make a good first impression and there’s nothing like a first day on the job to test your ability to affect how others interact with you! The good news is that we’re naturally wired to connect to others.
The benefit? Engaged workplaces are more innovative, have higher retention rates and get better results. This business etiquette workshop will show you all about evolved business conduct and will help you maximize your work relationships and send the right message about yourself (and your organization).

***Registration is open to all graduate students and postdoctoral fellows including prospective MITACS ACCELERATE Interns, current interns and interns pending internship approval, past interns, and MITACS research students who would benefit from this presentation.

***Please note that there is a $50.00 registration deposit to attend each workshop to a total of a $100 deposit*** This will be reimbursed to you pending confirmation of your attendance***
