Career Planning Resources for Students

Choosing a career path can be difficult. The Career and Employment Services team offers programming, services, and resources that help University of Windsor students and graduates explore their options and make informed decisions.

Workshops

Workshop topics related to career planning include:

  • Breaking Down the Career Decision Making Process: Learn how to identify your strengths, interests, preferences, and abilities by reconceptualising the career planning process as a series of small, logical steps. While we recommend starting the career decision making process early, it's never too late to begin!

Career Destinations

Are you searching for career options and asking yourself "What can I do with my degree?" or "What career path should I take?"

Our collection of Career Destinations guides can be used to explore careers related to your academic area of study.

Each guide outlines the core skills gained in a particular discipline, links to related professional associations and potential job titles graduates tend to work in. Keep in mind that your academic area of study is not limited to these job titles - this is simply a starting point to help get you thinking about the possibilities.
