A university is helping you get to your dream, one class at a time.

Next month, the University of Toronto is offering a course called: Designing Your Dream Job: Fundamentals.

The course, offered over two evenings, is part of the School of Continuing Education and teaches students how to define what they want, and how to create the ideal opportunity.

The two-part class explores why many are unhappy at work, and teaches a new philosophy of career design that will help create work that is fulfilling and engaging.

“Take two evenings to free yourself from 100-hour workweeks, meaningless Excel models and office politics, while exploring your phenomenal potential,” states the course description.

The outline for Designing Your Dream Job includes:

• Clarity on what type of job you want next, who you want to work with, and how you want to spend your days at work
• An understanding of how to design your next job instead of taking whatever comes next
• Ability to identify roles, companies, and the culture you want before you accept a job
• A networking pitch so you can tell people exactly what it is that you are looking for

No prerequisites are required. The course is at U of T on February 8 and 15 at 7 pm.
