UNB's Office of Experiential Education is partnering with Future of Work to offer 2 facilitated workshops on Future of Work skills.

For UNB students it is an excellent opportunity to add skills to your resume, and there is no fee for students for these introductory co-curricular workshops.

The Future of Work skills training can show prospective employers that not only do you bring the technical skills needed for the job, but that you also have soft skills that are indispensible in today's workplace. Plus, the skills these module cover, such as creativity and problem-solving, are also useful in your academic and day-to-day life.
