No need to stress, CPD is here to help now and into the Summer!

There is still time to find a job, and to access CPD services. Coaching sessions, electronic resume and cover letter critiques and all online resources are available to you throughout the summer months. These services can be used in person or virtually (via email or skype) if you are no longer on campus. You can also email your resume or cover letter for critique to either Danielle Little or Alison McGeorge. For students who are graduating, you have access to CPD services until August 31.

When looking for a job on OSCARplus, remember to look at both SSC Job Postings, and Business Student Job postings to maximize the number of opportunities available to you. In addition, grads can also consider Full-time Immediate roles in addition to Grad Recruitment Positions. For any role, if you can confidently sell your skills and experiences to align with 55-60% of the qualifications in a job description, APPLY!

Remember to also utilize other job search strategies including online sites like Talent Egg , LinkedIn, Indeed or your personal networking connections. There are so many positions out there that are never posted, so you can have success with “who you know”. Let CPD help you to navigate this job market!


The Career and Professional Development Office is open Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. in DSB 112.

Schedule an appointment with a Relationship Manager through OSCARplus under the Business Appointments section.
