Build your career – without leaving home

By Lucia Green, Career Centre

Don’t let your career goals stagnate while you’re stuck at home. The Career Centre team is working from home, too, but we’re still offering lots of the same services – just virtually.

Covid-19 and the job outlook

The pandemic brings with it a new reality, where there is more competition for fewer jobs. Stay active in your career management skills training. Visit CareerHUB for:

  • one-on-one coaching appointments
  • workshops
  • resumé and cover letter review
  • interview practice and more

Employers are still posting jobs on CareerHUB’s job board – check there frequently for new postings and don’t wait to apply!

Career Boost

The Career Boost for post-degree students is running completely online for both current and interested students. If you’re a post-degree student and aren’t already part of the program, you’ll definitely want to check it out.

DC Café

Try an online mentoring and networking platform such as DC Café to make connections remotely.

Co-operative education

The co-op program is continuing to place students into summer work terms. Current co-op students seeking positions are still being placed; students who are interested should sign up for an online info session in May.

The Career Centre can help you prepare with tips for interviewing online and upgrading your LinkedIn profile through workshops and one-one career coaching sessions – book your appointment on CareerHUB. You can also follow the Career Centre on Facebook or Instagram for general tips and advice.
