Girl looking towards forest on the path ahead of her


Think of your career path as a journey—an adventure that begins the moment you set foot on campus. Like a true adventurer, you let curiosity and passion guide you. The traits you nurture and the experiences you gain along the way prepare you for the world of work.

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.
