4 ways the Career Centre can help you plan for your dream job

Have you thought about what you’ll do after you graduate? Do you want to find a part-time job, try a few jobs before you choose your career, or gain skills and experience through a Co-op semester?

The Career Centre is your go-to for all these questions and more. They offer programs and services to help you learn how to apply your academic knowledge to your work and plan for your future.

Career clinics

These are a series of weekly workshops to help you learn what to do, and what not to do, on your career path. There are 28 topics, including how to write resumes and cover letters, how to network and use LinkedIn, job search techniques, negotiation skills and more. Additional specialized workshops are offered throughout the semester. You can check the events calendar on CareerHUB.

1:1 coaching by appointment

Career coaches are there to support and champion you through your job search, applications and interviews. They can teach you about cultural awareness, answer your questions and help you work through any concerns. Book an appointment on CareerHUB.

Career Boost program for post-degree students

If you’re a student in a post-degree program, this is where you will develop skills and knowledge about the local market to help you succeed in your job search. Hone your skills while you look for work to complement your study area. Join anytime in the semester and get career coaching to support you to reach your goals.

Co-operative education program

Co-op alternates a semester of academic studies with a semester of paid, full-time work. You’ll get hands-on work experience that’s relevant to your career. Students typically take their first Co-op terms in the third semester of their program. This is a great opportunity to apply classroom theory to a real work environment, build self-confidence and gain experience for your resume. You can find a list of all eligible programs for Co-op on this page.
