The GSS, in collaboration with the Centre for Student Involvement and Careers (CSIC), brings you an afternoon of activities designed to enhance your career and jumpstart your post-graduate success with a new headshot and polished job search skills. 

Professional Headshots

2-6pm – Advanced registration is mandatory (see sign-up box above), and available as first come, first served.*

You will receive up to three (unedited) headshots for your use on LinkedIn, conferences, job hunts, etc. 

* Each Headshot takes approximately 5 minutes and the order of the headshots is determined upon registration. 

*Registration and payment is only required if you wish to get headshots taken. If you're only planning on attending the workshops, you don't need to register or pay as these are FREE.
