Each institution works hard to support their graduates in finding employment. They are there to support you, but it is your responsibility to develop a relationship with your campus career centre. Taking the time to meet the career centre staff and participating in their programs can be a huge help when it comes to finding work.

  1. Ongoing access to your institution’s job posting board
  2. Special networking events where you can meet potential employers and/or clients
  3. Publications and newsletters that provide you with insight into what you can do with your credential
