Who we are

The Centre for Career Development (CCD) is here to provide support to all students, postdoctoral, alumni and employees as they plan their career journey. Our career advisors are the main point of contact for you to discuss your specific career options. We can help with everything from résumé and cover letter tips to career planning or graduate and professional school preparation. We have the tools to help you figure out your next steps.

Our goal

At the Centre for Career Development, our mission is to educate and inspire all University of Waterloo students (regular and co-op), alumni, employees, and postdoctoral to explore and act on their career journey. We accomplish this through high-quality in-person and online services in partnership with students, alumni, employers, faculty and staff.

Our vision will be realized when career development is integral in every component of the student experience at the University and the Centre for Career Development is recognized as a leader in university career education.
