Our office can assist you in self-assessment, career exploration, career decision-making and planning, and in acquiring job-hunting techniques. Whether you are in the initial stage of choosing a career, researching for options, struggling to make a decision or ready to hit the road with a job search plan, you are encouraged to consult with a career counsellor.
Individual appointment can be arranged with our office. Any information exchanged between the student and the counsellor is considered personal and confidential. No information is released without the student's permission.
The following concerns may be addressed by counsellors in counselling sessions:
Assist you to assess your talents, interests, skills and values and identify potential careers that match the students' profiles. You will be guided carefully amidst the myriad of confusing messages they may be receiving about careers from friends, family and the media.
Work with you to develop their ideas about a career and offer advice on researching careers and approaching the job search. You will be informed on the variety of career and job search resources available in the career resource centre, homepage and the Internet.
Offer advice and review cover letters and resumes.
Prepare you for an interview by discussing the guidelines or arranging for a mock interview. Commonly-asked questions in an interview may be reviewed and practiced to give you confidence for the interview.
