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, Rebecca, please visit our online appointment booking system. Rebecca offers appointments to Science students on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and alternating Tuesdays in the Dean's Office (Victoria Building, Rm. 737). Appointments are also offered by Rebecca to all students, of which Science students are welcome to book those appointment time slots.

If you cannot find an appointment time with Rebecca that fits your schedule, feel free to book an appointment with another Career Education Specialist at the Career Centre. For 1:1 appointments through the central Career Centre, please visit our online appointment booking system.
