Career paths are rarely similar. At the Career Corner, we’re committed to helping you find YOUR path and creating a bright future for yourself. The University of Ottawa offers a wide range of opportunities to help you grow and thrive to reach your personal and professional goals.

How do I get started?

Walk in to the Career Corner at UCU 216 to book an appointment. You can also use our chat weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to talk to a student career mentor who’ll guide you through our range of personalized services . If you aren’t on campus, you can book an appointment (in person or virtual) via the career development website.
