Career Exploration and Development
It is never too early in your degree to start thinking about long term goals and exploring the careers that may appeal to you. We recommend making an appointment with our career counsellor or career advisor to talk through future career options.
At Dalhousie, we have a career web portal that's just for Dalhousie students and is a great place to start your career exploration, called myCareer! myCareer is Dalhousie students' primary source of career information. You will find a job board speciifically for Dalhousie students, information on many workshops, events, etc. It is also where you will find your Co-Curricular Record which is a tool that allows you to keep record of your extracurricular involvement while you are a dalhousie student.
