York’s Career Centre offers a range of services and events which are open to all York students and new graduates as well as online resources to assist you with job searching, career exploration and finding volunteer opportunities.

The Career Centre strives to provide inclusive career exploration and job search supports to York’s diverse student population. In an effort to continue to make our services culturally sensitive, the Career Centre’s Resource Library contains books and resources for Aboriginal students.
