NIC FEST Comox Valley is March 22, and this is your opportunity to discover the possibilities for you at North Island College.
Keynote Speaker: Sean Aiken
Join us Wednesday, Match 22 at 6:00 pm at the Stan Hagen Theatre in the Comox Valley to listen to our keynote speaker Sean Aiken!
After having graduated from college with a Business Administration degree, top of his class with a 4.0 GPA and named Class Valedictorian, Sean struggled with fear, anxiety, and the expectation of others in answering the question, “What should I do with my life?”
Instead of taking the first job that came along, he found a unique way of figuring it out: The One-Week Job Project. He traveled throughout North America working 52 jobs in 52 weeks to find his passion.
“What should I do with my life?” It’s okay not to know.
