The Career Development Centre, located in York Hall A224, focuses on helping students and recent graduates navigate skills development and career exploration. Personalized career help is available through one-on-one appointments or by attending a workshop. 


  • Please attach a copy of your résumé or cover letter or copy and paste the job description for which you are applying on Experience York when you book your appointment
  • In English or in French, we can offer services such as job search assistance (including creating a LinkedIn profile), résumé or cover letter review, interview preparation, and general career counselling
  • We do NOT hand out jobs to students and recent graduates but rather provide job search strategies and resources

We recommend that students and recent graduates:

  • Schedule multiple appointments for the different parts of the job application process
  • Ask the employer any questions they have regarding the job description (we cannot interpret what the employer wants)
  • Remember that we are not responsible for them being hired
