The first ASPIRE seminar will take place on December 4th from 11:30am to 2pm. Lunch and coffee will be provided.

You will all be participating in an industrial internship during the ASPIRE program, so the theme of this seminar is Internship Preparation. We have asked representatives from Nova Scotia Power, one of our industry partners, to deliver the fall seminar. Mary Jenkins and Stephanie Coady are human resources professionals who will discuss interview skills and maximizing your impact in your first thirty days on the job.
