Career And Volunteer


Transitions from school to work can be intimidating. Having a career conversation about your next steps can help. Here is what we can do for you:

  • 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 and personal presentation skills, and developing skillful ways to search for work.
  • Encourage you to shine your light, so that you can contribute with confidence, to find, keep and thrive, doing work you are excited about.

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

Our Career Educators love to talk career. We use contemporary career development resources and draw from industry insights to guide you. Here are some of the things we can talk to you about:

  • Career pathways that lead from your degree
  • The benefits of volunteering and ways to make a difference
  • Meaningful exploration of possibilities
  • How to make informed decisions and learn to tell your story
  • Work search strategies and ways to build an awesome network
  • Tuning up the tools: resume, CV, interview tips, LinkedIn, cover letters
  • How to get grounded in a world of rapid and complex change
