You’re not alone in your career journey! Let’s raise awareness about all the ways you can take action and get career development support

Canada Career Month is all about considering the ways we can find meaning in our careers and discovering the ways we can access support along the way. For example, your career journey is more than just the job you want. Find meaningful connections with your interests and discover more possibilities through experiential learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom. 

We’re going to be sharing resources, services, programs and more throughout the month to raise awareness and help you take action.

First-year students, join the conversation through our weekly career questions

Each Wednesday, we ask questions and chat with first-year students about important career topics. Visit our careers team in PGCLL on Wednesdays, 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and check out our stories on the @MacSSC Instagram to share your perspective and get helpful guidance.
