      Now Hiring! 

      The Career Centre is currently hiring Career Peer Educators (CPEs) for the 2018-19 academic year! CPEs are current students who work part-time at the Career Centre to provide a variety of career-related services. 

      CPEs are critical members of the Career Centre team and work alongside a supportive and dynamic team of full-time staff and peers. Working at the Career Centre helps you to build transferable skills (like interpersonal communication and organization), make connections, and expand your knowledge of career-related information and services.
