How We Can Help

Planning your future in the middle of a pandemic isn't easy. You may feel stressed or discouraged and that's normal. Nobody can control what's happening out there but you can control how you respond. Working with a career professional can help you plan your next steps.

By taking small steps in your job or career search, you'll feel less anxious over time. Plus these tiny steps will yield results in the future. Taking action can boost your mental wellness and help you to see possibilities. Career Wellness is part of your overall wellness (see the graphic below)! Believe it or not, there is still a lot you can do to figure out your career direction or find work even during this time of physical distancing.

Talk to a Career Counsellor or Employment Strategist by phone, or video-conference today.  We can help with decisions regarding your program, career goals and how to job search during this time.

Call us at 905-828-5451 or 905-828-5264 to make an appointment. We are looking forward to working with you!

Don't hesitate to contact the UTM Health and Counselling Centre for assistance.
