About the Career Resilience Toolkit

About the Career Resilience Toolkit

Facilitated through the College’s Career Services and Co-operative Education department, the Career Resilience initiative takes a strengths-based, holistic approach to help you foster these characteristics. Its tools are beneficial whether you are just beginning your job search, launching your career or are already employed.

The Initiative consists of three central elements designed to equip you with the resources to develop a resilient career outlook:

Career Resilience Toolkit

The kit is a physical tool that encourages a growth mindset and highlights the personal qualities it requires. It includes buttons, thought cards and a journal. The buttons depict images of the five components of resilience. The thought cards, meanwhile, are designed to inspire you and also contain activities that encourage you to reflect on your thoughts, feelings and actions. You can then jot down your reflections in a journal you will receive if you attend a skills development workshop. In addition to cultivating a growth mindset, such visuals are reminders of how your current situation is helping to build your preferred future.

Skills Development Workshop Series

Throughout the year, Centennial’s Career Resilience initiative will facilitate a series of workshops to get you thinking about being a curious, persistent, optimistic and flexible risk-taker. These workshops will also provide guidance in the career planning process.
