Career And Volunteer


Transitions from school to work can be intimidating. A career conversation or group session with us can:

  • Show you the variety of options available with your degree, and ways to bring your unique experiences to the world in intentional ways.
  • Discover the power of a well-written resume, develop skillful ways to search for work, and learn to connect with people and workplaces. 
  • Encourage you to speak about your strengths, and contribute with confidence, so that you can land your first job, and begin your career. 

Make the transition easier by getting started today. We are here to inspire your future.

We use contemporary career development resources and industry insights to guide the process. Here are some of the things we can talk to you about:

  • Career exploration, and pathways that lead from your degree
  • The benefits of volunteering and ways to gain experience
  • Meaningful exploration of dreams, doubts and possibilities
  • How to make informed decisions and learn to tell your story
  • Work search strategies and ways to build an awesome network
  • Preparing for work: resume, CV, interview tips, LinkedIn, cover letters
  • How to do research, and use online career tools 
  • Have a career topic you have not seen here? Ask us about it!
