The Career Centre is committed to working with members of the York community to provide targeted career support to students across the York campus.
While we offer workshops, special events and one-on-one career support to all students and new graduates across Faculties and from all levels of study, we are frequently asked to provide career support to targeted groups of students throughout the campus. Here are some of the activities we provide:
Career support available:
Orientation presentation or mini workshop for new students and/or parents
During College orientations the Career Centre has a skit on professional etiquette handshaking techniques, which is brief, interactive and lets new students know that professional etiquette is just one of the many services offered by the Career Centre.
On-site advising at career events
The Career Centre team has provided on-the-spot career advising, information and resources to students attending Faculty-specific career fairs.
On-site advising at recruitment events
The Career Centre team has provided on-the-spot career advising, information and resources to students and parents attending recruitment activities such as the Ontario Universities Fair (OUF) and Spring Gala.
While we would ask that you refer students to workshops that are offered daily at the Career Centre, we sometimes offer these workshops to specific student cohorts such as:
- Job Search Strategies for International Students
- Professional Etiquette for Student Leaders
- Who Am I? for New Grads
Career panel participation and/or moderation
Members of the Career Centre team have participated as panelists to provide subject matter expertise in the areas of job search and career development such as the "Academic Job Search Panel" for PhD students.
Please note: The Career Centre offers two types of panel discussion as part of it's regular repertoire of activities:
