Career Counselling

Many students are uncertain what to major in. They don’t know how to select their focus from among the wide variety of options. Other students wonder where a given major may lead. They wonder what their future will be like if they choose a particular path.

Our counsellors work with career-concerned students using a wide variety of resources. Our excellent stocked Career Resource Centre has all the information students need to make sound career decisions.
