Career Services

Get your career off to a great start!

The University of Ottawa Career Services and the Alumni Association have joined forces to provide University of Ottawa graduates with career and coaching services. Whether you’re looking for your first job or undergoing a major career change, you can call on professional advice to guide you through the process.

Career Counselling Services

Graduates can access Career Services for two years after graduation, completely free of charge.

If you graduated more than two years ago, you can access career consulting services at a rate of $50 a year for unlimited access.

Career Counselling can help you:

  • set out career objectives;
  • evaluate your professional skills;
  • understand job-market trends in your field;
  • establish a job-search strategy;
  • tailor your CV for the job you want;
  • prepare for interviews.

Make an appointment with Career Services by calling 613-562-5806, or going to room 312, located at University Centre (UCU).

Psychometric Testing and Analysis

Career Services can also provide career guidance using psychometric tests, including:

  • Strong Interest Inventory: The Strong Interest Inventory report enables you to link your interests to specific career categories.
  • Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI): With the MBTI, you can discover the types of activities that interest you most, and clearly define the tasks or workplaces that suit you best.

After completing the tests, you meet a counsellor who provides an in-depth analysis of your test results and helps you draw up a customized action plan to find your perfect job.

If you graduated more than two years ago, you can take these psychometric tests at the discounted rate of $275 (market value of $500 to $1,000). This fee includes a one-hour consultation to review and interpret your results and to craft an action plan.
