At Careers and Experience (formerly Career Development and Experiential Learning), we help you navigate your career path with confidence. We are your guides—giving advice, providing resources, organizing events, letting you know about extra-curricular activities and supporting experiential learning opportunities, such as placements and co-ops. We ask questions that will get you thinking about the transition from classroom to career.
COVID-19: Online support
Our learning supports for students and alumni have now gone virtual.
Book appointments as usual on MacEwanLife and you’ll have the choice of phone or virtual appointments: learn how to optimize your interview skills for online job interviews, get help planning for your career, get tips on how to maximize your resume and cover letter, ask questions about grad school choices.
Get started on your professional resume with this 22 minute how-to video. Then join a virtual drop-in session to ask specific questions.
For quick career questions, join our virtual meetings (via Google meet) during drop-in hours: Mondays 1 – 3 p.m. and Thursdays 10 a.m. – noon.

Student, faculty and employer portal
Our career portal, called MacEwanLife, serves MacEwan students and alumni looking for jobs and career-related resources, employers posting job or placement opportunities and faculty and staff managing experiential learning activities.
As well, students and alumni can book appointments with Careers and Experience staff and faculty can request in-class presentations on a number of career-related topics.
