Book a 1:1 Appointment

We recommended that you attend a workshop or tutorial before you book a 1:1 appointment with a career education specialist; most common career-related questions can be answered by attending one of these sessions. This allows us to focus on customization and specialization in your 1:1 appointment.

To book a 30 minute appointment with your faculty’s career education specialist, please visit our online appointment booking system.

If you cannot find an appointment time that fits your schedule, feel free to book an appointment with another Specialist at the Career Centre.

Faculty Specific Supports & Events

We organize a variety of special sessions, workshops, and events throughout the year to address the needs of students from different faculties and special interest groups.

For more information on these events (e.g. dates, venues, registration link), please visit the Events Calendar.


If you are a faculty member, staff, or representative from a course union/student group looking to consult or collaborate with us in delivering career programming, please contact Fenella.

Join a Tutorial

These highly interactive 1-hour sessions, led by one of the Career Centre’s career education specialists, give you the opportunity to share experiences with your peers and learn from each other in a smaller group setting.

Tutorials are available through the Career Centre. To sign up for a tutorial, please visit our online booking system.
