Career Month

Students! Engage in your career

Career Month is November 1-30, 2021

October 22, 2021 — 

Every year Canadians across the country take part in Career Month. The University is hosting 20+ events and workshops this year so there is something for everyone! Whether you have it all figured out or if you are unsure of what steps to take along your career journey (or are somewhere in between) there is an event for you!

Career Month can connect you with people who can help you engage in your career planning. From the Volunteer Fair to the Career Café, Career Month is your opportunity to explore career pathways, and make connections to help you gain experience that will build your marketable skills and extend your network. Visit the Career Month webpage to see what is happening each week in November.

Take advantage of more than one event to jumpstart your career and connect to employment opportunities!
