The Career Centre provides programs and services to help you understand who you are, what you want to achieve and can help you develop strategies to get there. We have centres on both our Waterloo and Brantford campuses, where you are welcome to drop in at any time and access any of the resources available.
All services are included as part of your student fees, meaning you can access them as much and as often as you'd like.
Networking events and job fairs are excellent resources for finding your dream job and starting your career. Through these events, you can make connections to get to know people in the industry and ask questions to determine if a career path is right for you. We annually host employer recruiting sessions, career panels, networking events, and fairs.
Our career and job fairs are the largest of their kind in Canada.
Learn how to begin exploring careers and gain insight into strategies for job search and employment preparation by attending Career Centre workshops. Sessions cover a variety of topics and are delivered by our consultants at various times to fit your schedule.
