Our two full-time graduate career advisors are dedicated to serving grad students and postdocs like you.

We also have workshops, appointments and resources to help guide your post-academic career development. Whether you've just started your graduate degree, or you're wrapping up your PhD thesis or postdoc project, we're here for you. 

Are you in a Co-operative Education supported Master’s co-op program and looking for clarification of the co-op process? Meet with a career advisor in a short “co-op consult” by registering at the Centre for Career Action front desk in person or by phone (519-888-4047) Monday through Friday 8:30am – 4:00pm.


"My advisor was incredibly insightful and helpful. She did an excellent job of identifying strengths and weaknesses and of communicating them. The assistance I received was well above my expectations, and I have already recommended this service to other students." 

"Excellent. Without a doubt the most helpful advisor I have met with from both my undergraduate and graduate degrees at Waterloo. 100% above and beyond my expectations. Could not be happier with my experience."
