Students and alumni can access 'artswork', an online database with 40-60 new jobs posted each week. 

Career Advising

Students are encouraged to use Drop-In times, and attend all applicable Clinics + Strategy Sessions prior booking a one on one appointment.

Drop-In

During the regular academic year, the Career + Professional Development Office has drop-in hours to answer your general questions.  Drop-ins are limited to 10 minutes. If your question cannot be answered within this time we will schedule an appointment for you or recommend you attend a scheduled Clinic/Strategy Session. 

Individual Appointments

To sign up for (30 minute) appointments, students are to email coop[at]ecuad.ca with the following information:

  • Student Name
  • Student Number
  • Preferred appointment time + one back up time

Students who have not provided the information required will not be scheduled.

Appointments are scheduled on a unique need basis.  Students should plan to, or have already attended the corresponding Clinic/Strategy Session offered for their topic of inquiry prior to booking a one on one appointment.
