We’ve also created online tutorials that cover resumé and cover letter writing, interview strategies, and how to access our services.

Career advisor consultations
Book a one-on-one consultation or email your resumé for review through My Career Hub.
Our office is the Stan Grad Centre, room MB205, and office hours are Monday to Friday, 8 am – 4:30 pm. Virtual career advising appointments are also available.
Our services include the following:
Did you know hiring managers spend less than 11 seconds looking at a resume? Have one of our specialists review your resumé to ensure it will catch someone's eye so it doesn't end up in the pile of rejected applications.
Schedule a practice interview, and our specialist will ask you questions you can expect in actual interviews, like "What is your greatest weakness?" and "Tell me about a time when you had to deal with an upset co-worker or customer."
It's an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the interview process without the risk of making mistakes that could cost you a job!
LinkedIn profile review
LinkedIn is a great tool for connecting with potential employers and future colleagues. Have one of our specialists review your profile to ensure it will get you noticed.
Polish your online profile with a professional photo. Check My Career Hub for dates and to register.
Job search consults
Have you been applying for jobs and getting no responses? Maybe you're not even sure where to start.
We can take a closer look at how you've been going about your job search to identify potential areas for improvement so that you can increase your chances of success.
