Centre for Career Action
Your career is yours to decide, but you’re not alone!
Career Advisors are here to guide you as you take your next (or first) step toward setting and achieving your goals. Our agenda is your agenda; we’ll start with “where you’re at” because that is a fine place to be. We can help you to learn about career management techniques, educational planning and job search methods, and how to set meaningful and achievable goals.
Take your “next step” now by engaging with us via: confidential individual advisement, workshops, events, print/online resources, and job postings.
Career strategy, job search tactics, graduate/professional school preparation – it’s what we do … with you.
