Innovative program aimed at career revitalization

Career Recharge offers workshops,
mentorship and other supports

"NOW I'M VERY HAPPY," says Vahid Hosseini.
"I'm happy I was laid off."
This is not something you'd normally
hear someone say, but Hosseini is pleased
to be one of the participants in Seneca's
Career Recharge, an initiative created with
the support of TD.
Workshops, mentorship and other
events are available to anyone looking
to gain a new perspective on their careers
and future. Appropriately hosted in
our Newnham Campus Centre for Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship
(CITE), Career Recharge is free and open
to the public.
A self-described lifelong learner, Hosseini is a fan of the workshops in particular.
He takes photos of the presentation and
enthusiastically jots down notes at each
session.
"I always want to learn," he explains.
Participants are able to choose to attend
Career Recharge in person or online to learn
about topics like data thinking, conflict resolution, interview skills and more. The goal
is to offer mid-career individuals flexible
resources to help to recharge their careers
and to prepare for the future of work.
"Constant change is the new dynamic of
business today," says Chris Dudley, Director of Entrepreneurship. "You will need to
have resilience skills and the confidence to
negotiate the changing levels of business."
For Hosseini, the opportunity to advance
his communication skills and customer service strategies is a major benefit. Plus, he

greatly values the chance to make meaningful connections with fellow participants.
"Every week when I participate, I
go home and check my LinkedIn to engage
in feedback."
Like many Career Recharge participants,
Hosseini was drawn to Career Recharge
by a connection with Seneca's on-campus
innovation hub, HELIX.
After many years working abroad,
Hosseini moved to Canada in 2015. He came
to Seneca to work towards his CPA designation, and while on campus, he discovered
HELIX. When he was laid off in 2016, he
turned to HELIX for support in launching
his own business, Beaver Accounting
Services Inc.
"Here I can learn so many things," he
says. "It's all practical, it's not just theory."
Career Recharge, which launched in
June, was made possible by a $1-million
grant from the inaugural TD Ready
Challenge, of which Seneca was one of
10 recipients across North America. The
goal of the Challenge was to support nonprofit institutions with initiatives that help
people with skills for the future economy.
The Challenge is part of the bank's broader
efforts to help open doors for a more inclusive and sustainable tomorrow through
The Ready Commitment.
Career Recharge workshops are hosted
every other Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Participate online or in person.
