Cindy had the honor of presenting at the annual St. George’s Careers Day event on March 9, 2018. This year’s theme – Finding your Purpose: Not Just a Job – corresponds with their efforts to help their students strive for purpose and meaning in the planning of their post-secondary studies and future careers. This goes far beyond individual pursuits and includes working towards goals that will make a positive difference in the lives of those around them. The following quote by Mark Zuckerberg aptly sums up the theme of this year’s event:
“Purpose is that sense that we are part of something bigger than ourselves, that we are needed, that we have something better ahead to work for. Purpose is what creates true happiness…But it’s not enough to have purpose for yourself. You have to create a sense of purpose for others.”
The students walked out with more wisdom, guidance, and a true appreciation for the speakers.
