Planning Ahead

Please allow an appropriate lead time in advance of your scheduled event to partner with the Career Centre effectively.

Depending on the nature of your program, a minimum of two weeks or more is required, especially when external guests are involved.

We do our best to support student groups however we can – including after-hours events and last-minute requests – but the sooner we hear from you, the more support we can offer.
