The EDGE (Engage, Develop, Grow Your Employability) Program is here to support students registered with the Tramble Centre as they navigate their current and future opportunities for work. Through intentional guidance and coaching, students can increase their self-awareness, career goal options, workplace connections, and employability.
Our goal is twofold: to deliver career-related programming and deliver our work experience program.
The Career Transition Coordinator develops relationships with employers to promote the program and its students via networking/workshops/meet-greets. Career-related services are offered to students virtually, in-person, and in group settings. Digital and print resources that align with accessibility standards are available to students.

Students registered with the Tramble Centre for Accessible Learning can contact Heather Myers, Career Transition & EDGE Program Lead (@email) with any employment-related questions. If you are looking for a job, need help to develop a professional resume and cover letter, want to practice your interview skills, or talk about school/work options after you graduate, Heather can help!
Work Experience Program
The work experience program provides part-time (during the school year) and full-time summer employment opportunities. During the academic year, students can work up to 10 hours per week on or off-campus. In the summer, students can work full-time hours 32.5 to 37.5 hours/ week. Work experience is an excellent way to expand your resume, build a network, and gain skills that will help you be successful in future work.
To participate in the work experience component, students:
- Must be registered with the Tramble Centre for Accessible Learning (with a PSAS) and have completed the first year.
- Students must be a Nova Scotia student and have their permanent address within Nova Scotia.
- Have completed at least one year of study and are returning to StFX in the fall.
