Topics can include what to do with degree in, resume/CVs and cover letters, interview strategies, job searching, discovering interests, networking, skills assessments, thinking about grad/professional school?

- Job Search Resources: We have information on how to write an effective resume/cover letter/CV, tapping into the hidden job market, networking, and more!
- Drop-in career advising: Through our Career Studio initiative, students can drop in to get help on various career or employment-related questions.
- Resume review appointments: Trained resume coaches work with students in one-on-one appointments on resume and cover letter strategy.
- Career Counselling appointments: A career counsellor works with students in one-on-one appointments on various career questions like, which degree is best for me? How can I figure out what I want to do? What are the options with this degree?
Faculty and staff are encouraged to refer students to the StFX Student Career Services. We enjoy collaborating with all departments on-campus to facilitate student success. We are open year-round and students from first year to final year can access our services.
