Career and Professional Development Resource Hub
Welcome to the Career and Professional Development Resource Hub! The resources below are designed to support you in exploring, preparing and applying for internships and opportunities during your program and for careers following graduation.
Career ExplorationCareer self-assessment and career exploration tools are great resources to help you outline your skills, interests, and values in order to find organizations and career paths that are a good fit for you and your long-term career satisfaction. Resources for networking and informational interviews are also included to support you in further exploring and learning about career paths that you are interested in pursuing following graduation.
Career PreparationOnce you have decided on a particular career path or perhaps a couple of career paths you are interested in pursuing, you should take the time to prepare before you start applying for positions. We suggest beginning to prepare at least one year before your estimated graduation date. Learn more about preparing your CV and resume and building your online presence.
