The University of Ottawa offers a wide range of opportunities to help you grow and thrive so you can reach your personal and professional goals. At the Career Corner, we believe that career paths are rarely similar and we are committed to helping you create a bright future for yourself. The Career Corner is your one-stop shop for information and resources for your career development!

From advice on where and how to gain valuable employment skills, to assistance with the tools you need to land the right opportunity to gain experience, the Career Corner can help all uOttawa students from every faculty.

How do I get started?

You can start by using the chat feature, which is available every weekday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., to talk to a student career mentor, who will guide you through the range of personalized services available to you through the Career Corner counsellors. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, our in-person appointment location (formerly UCU 211) is currently not open.

What can I learn?

Career Corner mentors can direct you to resources to help you gain experience and prepare for your career, such as:

  • On-the-spot reviews of your CV
  • LinkedIn profile reviews
  • Job search strategy sessions
  • CO-OP program information
  • Volunteering and community engagement opportunities
  • Internships and part-time/summer jobs
  • and so much more!

Do they offer practical training?

Of course! You can book appointments to practice interviews (including med school, law school and grad school interviews) or schedule appointments with career counsellors for employment testing and private sessions to review your resume or LinkedIn profile.

The Career Corner can help you find experiential learning opportunities that will enhance your academic experience and career path in many ways. We want to support you in achieving your highest aspirations and help you reach your goals. Don’t put it off: contact the Career Corner by email or chat for more information or resources!
