Career Counselling group session with your advisor, Déborah Kestener, recruitment expert

Career Counselling is a free service for all students as well as young graduates for two years after they receive their degrees.

We help you to:

  • Define your professional goals;

  • Better understand your interests and skills;

  • Explore career paths and opportunities;

  • Prepare for job searches and applications (CV, cover letter, etc.);

  • Practice employment interviews.

During these one hour meetings, we will work in groups of three students on the various aspects mentioned above. Remember to bring your application documents (CV, cover letter, examples of job descriptions).
You will come out of this session with a complete toolbox to explore the various opportunities available to you.

We advocate these appointments for students and recent graduates who have never had contact with Alumni Relations and Career Services. For any other more personalised request, please come to meet us during the drop-in hours or contact us.
