Those who attend will be entered into a draw for an opportunity to win either Sean Aiken’s One Week Job book or a DVD copy of the movie on the evening of the event.

The screening of Aiken’s documentary, One-Week Job, is the highlight of the Career Centre’s Career Week, which runs from  from September 26 to 30.

This year’s theme is “Discover Your Passion.”
