Meeting with a Career Coach

Are you nearing the end of the IEP Bridging Program and beginning to think about your long term career plans in Canda?

We encourage you to take the next step and consider meeting with a Career Coach.  This is a professional who spends one-on-one time with IEP students - conducting needs assessments, reveiwing your career goals and determining how they can best position themselves to be successful in obtaining a relevant, satisfying job. For example - they would review your resume, suggest strategic job seeking tasks, engage you in mock interviews, and more.  It is important to note that Career Coaches do not do the job search for you, nor do they find you a job. Think of them like personal advisors who know the job market and know how to help people succeed in it.

Who gets the most out of their time with a Career Coach?

  • Someone who is actively looking for a job, has an open mind, and is willing to hear and act on whatever suggestions the Career Coach makes.
  • Someone who has some flexibility in their schedule to meet with the Career Coach.
  • Someone who honours their own time and that of the Career Coach's so that they might make the most of the sessions.

When can I meet with a Career Coach?

When you are nearing the end of the IEP Bridging Program and have begun to actively consider your long term career plan in Canada and/or are looking for jobs, you are eligible. An IEP student is typically afforded at least 2 hours with one coach, with sessions of 30 minutes - 1 hour long.
