HOW WE CAN HELP

Our appointments will offer you support, resources and information to help you find a job, wherever you are in your job search, start to finish. You can use our personalized coaching services over a series of appointments.  Students often ask:

  • Where are the jobs that I want?
  • How do I network?
  • What do I say when I'm speaking with an employer?
  • What should be in my resume/cover letter/LinkedIn profile?
  • How do I get the experience I need for my career?
  • Can you help me prepare for my job interview? What about a Skype/phone/group interview?

We help you develop a customized, step by step job search plan, including developing strong resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles, learning how to network effectively, preparing for interviews, how to gain the experience you need and how to find unadvertised jobs (did you know that 70-80 per cent of jobs are never advertised?).

Come into the Career Centre (DV 3094) or call us at 905-828-5451 to make an appointment; we’re looking forward to working with you.

Your privacy is respected in this process; we do not share information with others without your written consent unless required by law. Appointments are private; students wishing others to be present will first meet with the Employment Strategist to discuss this request and arrive at a mutually agreed upon solution.
