Career Coaching

Meet virtually with a career coach for a session tailored to your unique needs.

Join us for a new virtual program Conversations with a Career Coach

Gain confidence, skills and inspiration to advance your career

Meet with one of UCalgary Alumni’s career coaches 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 have been suspended at the present time due to COVID-19 but we look forward to connecting with you virtually.


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