Career Coaching

Meet one on one with a career coach — either in-person or online — for a session tailored to your unique needs.

Gain Confidence, Skills and Inspiration to Advance Your Career

Meet with one of UCalgary Alumni’s career coaches, either in-person or online, to discuss your work journey, no matter if you’re looking for new opportunities or aiming to progress in your current career, with each session geared to your unique needs and questions.

Some examples of topics you might be interested in exploring include:

  • developing strategies that support your job search, including creating an effective resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile;
  • navigating career transitions and changes;
  • identifying career goals and finding opportunities based upon those goals; and
  • networking effectively.

All in-person coaching sessions will be conducted at the University of Calgary’s Downtown Campus. Keep checking back regularly as coaching sessions open up four weeks in advance.

NOTE: Career coaching is only available to UCalgary alumni who've completed a degree program. If you're a current student, please visit Career Services
