Message from the Rotary Career Symposium (RCS) Co-Chairs of the Board of Directors Constant and accelerating change challenge future generations. New career opportunities take flight every day reaching new heights in technology and innovation. We must educate and enable ourselves to promote the importance of education leading to industry needs. We must encourage students to be thought leaders, through the creation, improvement and disruption of current technologies and processes. This will be where the jobs of today and tomorrow will exist. As parents, counsellors or teachers guiding today’s youth or job seekers, you know firsthand how fast our world is moving for the leaders of today and tomorrow. We can only help to prepare them for the challenges they will face in finding ways to successfully move forward. All those who work to create the RCS appreciate your efforts and want to assist you and your children, students or clients as they seek out information to make informed career decisions. The goal of our Symposium is to provide opportunities to explore and discover career opportunities, through experiential activities and quality information from exhibitors with relevant knowledge. Each year there are new additions to the RCS to improve the experience for our guests and this one is no exception as we introduce: •Creation of a special evening that encourages parents and students to explore the possibilities together through Manitoba Career Prospects and a keynote address from Jayson Dzikowicz, Performance Coach and President of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Alumni Association, Entrepreneur •Google cardboard will provide an inside look into virtual reality technology •Career Chats will add 20 career speakers in fast and informative sessions •Job Boards allows students and job seekers alike to apply for current employment opportunities The Rotary Clubs of Winnipeg, in partnership with the Manitoba School Counselors’ Association and through support from The Province of Manitoba present the Rotary Career Symposium (RCS) as a service to assist Manitoba youth with decisions ahead of them. We strive to complement schools’ career development initiatives by providing students with opportunities to gather information used in career and educational planning. The Symposium is a venue where students can visit displays, attend speaker sessions and meet business and education leaders to learn more about career and education opportunities. Attendees should also bring resumes as there will be job counselors and exhibitors looking for employees. They may even be able to find their first job! Remember to check back to our website often as it will have up-to-date information on our exhibitors and speakers www.careersymposium.ca. We hope your experience at the RCS will be extraordinary! We look forward to seeing you at the Symposium! Lucy Vogrig 2016 Co-Chair

Rae-Lynn Rempel 2016 Co-Chair
