Kick-start the rest of your life

Students and recent grads, make the leap from school to career with confidence.

Next Steps is an intensive and energizing one day conference for  students and recent graduates that is held annually. It is part career exploration, part preparation for life after graduation, and a great way for students and young alumni to start building their professional networks.

With a variety of speakers, career exploration panels and networking opportunities, Next Steps lets you explore options you may not have even known you had.

Who Should Attend?

If you are a graduating student in the Faculty of Arts & Science, a recent University of Toronto graduate or a younger student who would like to start planning for the future, then Next Steps is for you. Participation is free.

Not an Arts and Science Student?

A number of spaces for students from other faculties and schools have been reserved.

Recent Alumni?

If you’re a recent alum interested in advice and support, you’re more than welcome to attend. Register as a delegate and attend the whole conference or simply come to the Alumni-Student Networking Event.

Interested in Volunteering?

Alumni volunteers are the strength of this conference. Come share your experience and insights; volunteer as a panellist, speaker or alumni ambassador. Younger alumni who have recently entered the workplace are especially in demand. If you have any questions about volunteering at the Conference, please email Carlo Siochi at
