ONLINE JOB BOARD

Post a position
I’m ready to graduate from my program – how will I find a job?

There are many ways that the Employment and Career Centre can support you as you complete your education. We host numerous employer and recruitment events on campus throughout the year to help highlight career opportunities and companies that may be a good fit for you. Statistics show that networking is the number one way to find a job, so taking advantage of the opportunity to meet with various recruiters and HR personnel when they are on campus is a great start to making some industry contacts. It also allows you some face time to ask them questions about their application process and what you can be doing that will make you stand out as an applicant when you are ready to apply for work.

We also offer resumé and cover letter support to assist you in creating a targeted, customized resumé that emphasizes your qualifications and transferable skills. The biggest mistake that jobseekers make when creating their resumé is not tailoring the information to the job and company they are applying to.

Once your resumé and cover letter are completed, we can help you work on your interview skills by arranging a mock interview for you to participate in. Feeling prepared for a real interview helps you convey confidence to an employer and better articulate why they should consider you for a position.


I’ve registered in my program – what if I decide I don’t like it?

Finding the right program fit is important to your success as a student. In fact, data shows that the number one reason students do not complete their post-secondary studies is program fit. If you don’t think your program is right for you, then you should meet with an academic advisor and the career advisor as soon as possible to discuss your options.

An academic advisor will assess your situation and help you understand what steps are needed to minimize any impact on you, while the career advisor will discuss other career possibilities that may be more suited to your interests.
