Career Programs SD23 Goal

Every student will graduate with the attributes, credentials and experiences to connect their career life plan with their individual talents and passions in pursuit of a balanced, meaningful and fulfilling life.


Engineers help prevent disease, reduce poverty and create solutions to protect people and our planet: engineers are humanitarians, innovators, visionaries, and entrepreneurs. Many engineers also use their degree to become doctors, lawyers, CEOs, and entrepreneurs.


​UBC Engineering is committed to increasing diversity within their student body to better reflect the diverse society engineers serve. We hope you take this opportunity to explore the engineering options available at UBCO.​

The Learning Partnership launches its latest innovation today: Real Talk. We spoke to students across the country about what they need to help them make choices about post-secondary options. We used that feedback to team up with app designers Tiny Hearts Studios to create this career app, which reaches out to students where they spend a lot of time: in social media.

Real Talk is designed to provide high school students with the opportunity to gain "peer to peer" perspectives, advice, tips and resources from young people who have recently made the school to work transition.

The app includes "what I wish I knew when I was in high school about the world of work", advice for success, recommended resources and basic salary information via profiles (already 500!) that "twenty-somethings" have created.

Choosing a career direction isn't just about the ten-year plan, it's about what needs to happen tomorrow. That's why every Real Talk profile includes a list of resources curated by the authors themselves. Students can bookmark, like, and share the careers that interest them, while building a digital "to-do list" of resources to help plan "life after high school." Help us share this exciting new way for students to discover and learn about careers.
