Book an Appointment

Online or email appointments can be booked with Career Centre staff while the university is working remotely. To book an appointment, log in to Navigator, choose your home campus calendar and then book by appointment type. When you choose your appointment slot, select Online or Email. If you choose Online, the consultant will send you an email with a link to Join a Teams Meeting. Click the link at the time of your appointment and then 'Join on web instead' - you do not need to download any software to your computer. If you are on your phone, you will be prompted to download the free Teams app and you can join as a guest. 

Any questions about appointments can be emailed to careercentre@wlu.ca (Waterloo/Kitchener) or careerbrantford@wlu.ca (Brantford). While we are unable to see you in the Career Centre right now, we look forward to meeting with you online or by email.

The Career Consulting Process

Career consultants can provide you with information on many occupations based on your interests, skills, preferences, past experiences, education and training. If you require a career consulting appointment, you should be prepared to commit two to three hours of time over a three to four week interval – 45 minutes for an initial career advising individual appointment, 30 minutes to complete one or more assessment tools, one hour to attend an assessment debrief appointment if you choose to complete assessment tools and a 45 minute follow-up appointment with a career consultant to further discuss your individual situation.

Career consultants may recommend self-assessment tools, which will be delivered and interpreted by trained staff.

Volunteering

If you are uncertain about your career path or have not had the opportunity to gain paid experience in your chosen career field, volunteering can be a tremendous source of information and experience!
