Schulich Insights 2018: Cultivating Meaningful Careers for a Dynamic Workforce (Nov 2nd)
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? A very annoying question for high school graduates, but for those of us doing our MBA it can be fun to imagine where we might be. The world is our oyster. What did you answer? Maybe you saw yourself as VP of a company, with a beautiful spouse, a nice house, a best in show dog, and 2 international vacations every year. That doesn’t sound bad. Did you ever think about how you would feel? Who you would be? What it would all mean to you? Would you be fulfilled? Maybe it is time to think differently about where you’ll be in 5 years. Instead of dreaming about what you will have you could start imagining what your life will mean to you. This year at Schulich’s hallmark career conference you will get to imagine that.
